A group of seemingly unconnected characters–a ruthless self-help guru, a former boy genius, a game show host, a caretaker, a trophy wife, a lovesick cop–all come together over the course of a single day that ends with a stunningly emotional moment of (literally) biblical significance.
Paul Thomas Anderson followed the bright colors and disco soundtrack of Boogie Nights with this surprisingly original, ambitious, and dramatic multi-character study, combining another amazing ensemble cast with a tender soundtrack from Aimee Mann – including an iconic musical sequence unlike any other in modern cinema.
