|Sony Pictures Classics | Release Date: June 21, 2002||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Almost two and a half hours long, and mostly consists of calm conversations. But don't be deterred, or you'll miss out on a study of character, class and changing times that puts Robert Altman's stodgy "Gosford Park" to shame.
The usual Sayles mix of torpor and talent prevails here.
Though his latest, Sunshine State, shows Sayles usual literary care, it's a very slight work compared with such cinematic tomes as "Lone Star," "Matewan" and "Eight Men Out."
