Part sequel, part variation on the acclaimed and controversial film Happiness, Life During Wartime assembles an amazing ensemble cast in an utterly hilarious exploration of the boundaries of forgiveness, family, and love. Ten years have passed since shocking revelations shattered the world of the Jordan family, and now sisters Joy, Trish, and Helen, each embroiled in their own unique dilemmas, struggle to find their place in an unpredictable and volatile world. The past now haunts their family both literally and otherwise, and jeopardizes the future. Alternately hilarious and tragic, outrageous and poignant, this is an audacious comedy with unexpected resonance. (35mm presentation.)
