This movie depicts mid-life crisis and the dysfunction it brings. Sam Mendes deserves credit for bringing out issues like a lack of family values, homosexuality and wayward adolescents in such a humorous and thought-provoking way. This movie also has an impressive background score and stellar performances. The scene where Kevin Spacey realises his fallacy in luring his daughter’s friend and the realisation hits him is done so well. It’s a directors movie with excellent performances from all the cast.
