The Safety of Objects
Inspired by Robert Altman's adaptation of Raymond Carver stories for Short Cuts, Rose Troche weaves seven stories by AM Homes into a highly entertaining ensemble film.

Kaleidoscopically portraying the interlocking lives of four families, The Safety of Objects takes an intensely personal look at the characters who live with their daily frustrations, guilt, regrets and hang ups.

A superb cast breathes life into these characters, headed by Glenn Close's powerful portrayal of Esther, a mother trying to come to terms with the impact her comatose son has brought to the family. Also features Dermot Mulroney, Jessica Campbell and Patricia Clarkson.
