Toni Collette, Marcia Gay Harden, Rose Byrne, Mary Beth Hurt and finally Brittany Murphy are the main characters in interconnected episodes surrounding a murder that play like high quality short stories. I’m too swamped to say anything else right now, but I have a feeling this movie will be talked about for a while. Opens December 29.

The Dead Girl. Karen Moncrieff, 2006. ****
