The Great New Wonderful

A rich drama with comic elements, set in New York a year after 9/11, tracing the aftershocks of that event on the lives of five disparate people. Complex and subtle, and with an outstanding ensemble featuring Olympia Dukakis, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Tony Shalhoub and Edie Falco to name just a few, the five disconnected storylines capture the fragile veneer that many have employed to bury the real reasons underlying their pain and ennui.
