movie watching while awaiting an open washing machine...

Four sets of laundry machines are really not enough for a 40 unit building. Especially when they're only usable from 8am to 10pm (part of the condo association rules, presumably pushed because the laundry room borders 4 active units with no sound insulation).

Beware the emotional onslaught. Especially of the first.

Paddy Considine and Samantha Morton as the undocumented Irish immigrant parents of two girls, played by Sarah and Emma Bolger. The girls are fabulous. A neighbor, Djimon Hounsou, adds a nice bit of chemistry and perspective to the mix.

Jennifer Aniston & Cameron Diaz in a twisted triangle-plus. Amanda Peet plays Aniston's sister.

The male actors are alright, but they're generally nothing special (John Mahoney plays his typical irascible but gruffly sensitive dad, and those playing his sons have moments, but are inconsistently believable), and there's dreadfully little chemistry between most of the nominal partners.

But the story was interesting, and there were definitely a few moments of twinge.

Up next -- Forces of Nature, with Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck (ETA -- and Maura Tierney!)... I less-than-three Bullock (and Tierney), and Affleck can sometimes pull it together, so we'll see.
