Winner by unanimous vote of the International Critics Prize at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival, Todd Solondz's Happiness paints a broad portrait of contemporary suburbia and the demons that haunt it.
At its center are three sisters -- Joy, Trish, and Helen -- and the men in their lives: an unreliable boyfriend, a husband who is a therapist, and an anonymous starker, who turns out to be a neighbor. The most troubled of the men may be Bill, the therapist who is also Trish's husband, as he struggles with his desires for his son Billy's pubescent classmates. When the police begin to close in, everyone's lives -- and everyone's relationships -- are changed forever.From the Publisher:
A stark, black comedy about the search for love and happiness, Happiness is a deeply ironic film that centres on the emotional and sexual relationships between three sisters and the men in their lives - one of whom discovers that her husband is a paedophile. Award-winning film-maker Todd Solondz charts the interactions of the men and women in the film - as they desperately try to make emotional contact with each other - with the same unremitting glance, and taste for dark humour, that gave his portrait of adolescence in Welcome to the Dollhouse such disturbing power.
