Dark Horse

Another movie on at the IFI that sounds good is Dark Horse. With Selma Blair, Mia Farrow and Christopher Walken starring, the review courtesy of Le Cool.
"Darkhorse is the long awaited film from Todd Solandz, and with a top-class cast - Mia Farrow making a rare appearance and Selma Blair in a role that compliments her down to the ground - her character is Miranda (made for bitchface) - who marries a bit of a no-hoper because she failed in her academic pursuits. The man to her wife is Abe, unsuccessful thirty-something, gathering dust in his parents' house like baubles in the Christmas box, collecting toy horses. If the image in your mind is now a My Little Pony episode of Jerry Springer/Maury, it's not far from the premise of the film...It is charming, funny and touching, which is enhanced by its quirky, plasticky, candy coated visuals. Christopher Walken is also in it - as proof of this film's comedic quality."
