Human Capital (Netflix Disc):

The lives of two different families collide when their children begin a relationship that leads to a tragic accident.

The movie starts at the critical point (the accident), then goes Rashomon-style narrating (or for you younger views, the movie “Go”) and gets up to that point from all the different perspectives of the viewer. Awesome cast, and all do very well in their roles. The characters are very much real, you identify and understand each character’s feelings and viewpoints of everything presented.

A very nice slow burn, and a surprise that this style of movie was about 100 minutes. Many times, these are drawn-out epic-style movies. Pretty sure they cut out some of the fat, and if they did, none was missed. Thumbs up from me.
