58. May 5/12, 2010 - Mrs. Harris (2005)

The most interesting thing about this movie is the number of people who show up for bit parts or cameos. Lisa Edelstein, Chloe Sevigny, Cristine Rose, Mary McDonnell, Ellen Burstyn and Cloris Leachman all show up at some point or another, but their presence is the only thing that makes this worth watching. It's hobbled together from pieces in three different narrative forms, but flashbacks, documentary-style interviews and melodrama do not mix well. The story is choppy and confusing, with none of the suspense and intrigue that it could have had.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
