If I Were You (2012)26K
If I Were You: Directed by Joan Carr-Wiggin. With Marcia Gay Harden, Leonor Watling, Joseph Kell, Daniela Saioni. When a woman tries to outwit her husband’s sexy young mistress, the unexpected consequences include starring as King Lear in a very amateur production – with the mistress, an aspiring actress, playing The Fool.
“This is one of the most entertaining and downright funny films I have been privileged to watch in the past several years. Plot twists and turns come fast and are unexpected. Marcia Gay Harden leads an impeccable cast of interesting, quirky and all too human characters that include Aiden Quinn. The writing is simply exceptional. The dialog is as witty and hilarious as it comes, and come it does, non-stop. Joan-Carr Wiggin, who is both writer and director, smashes this one clean out of the park. I doubt youu0026#39;ll find yourself glancing at your iPhone or Blackberry during this film. This film is but another vehicle that demonstrates the versatility, cleverness, and command that a seasoned actor like Ms. Harden can bring to a role. Watching the interaction of the actors is much like watching the intricately choreographed dance numbers of a Twyla Tharp. Once this goes into general release, expect to see Marcia Gay Harden walk away with a Best Actress Oscar.”
