Happiness, a film at once hilariously sardonic and profoundly unsettling, tells a series of interconnecting love stories set in American suburbia. Award-winning film-maker Todd Solondz explores the sorrows and desires of men and women - as they desperately try to navigate through the uncharted and most intimate aspects of their lives - with the same unremitting glance, and taste of dark humour, that gave his portrait of adolescence in Welcome To the Dollhouse such disturbing power.
The search for happiness connects lonely lives in this subversively funny film. Meet three sisters at the center of a struggle with the secret demons of middle class perfection. There's Joy (Jane Adams) who is rebounding from a breakup with her latest loser boyfriend (Jon Lovitz), Helen (Lara Flynn Boyle), a glamorous writer looking for drama in a relationship with a slovenly obscene phone caller (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) and then there's Trish (Cynthia Stevenson), the housewife who appears to have it all, including a shrink husband (Dylan Baker) who has an unnatural obsession which he manages to keep secret from his family and friends.
