Review: The upside of Kevin Costner

-A A +A
By Kelly LeVan

What would you do? You’re a middle-aged woman living in a big, suburban home. You and your husband have four daughters, one in high school, one in college and two in-between. Then one evening, your husband doesn’t come home – the same day, you find out, his secretary runs off to Sweden with her mysterious lover.

In Mike Binder’s “The Upside of Anger,” this is Terry Wolfmeyer’s (Joan Allen) situation. She decides to get mad.

And she finds a few things  to keep her furious.

Her 18-year-old daughter Andy (Erika Christensen) wants to get a job straight out of high school, despite her mother’s adamant desire that she continue her education. When she finds a job, she simultaneously finds a very inappropriate boyfriend.

Her daughter Emily (Keri Russell) wants to pursue a career in dancing, and plans to attend an arts college – hardly a “real” college in her mother’s livid eyes.

Much to Terry’s satisfaction, her eldest, Hadley (Alicia Witt), is graduating from college. However, she’s also getting married – which she tells her mother right before she meets him for the first time.
