Dark Horse

Writer/director Todd Solondz ("Welcome to the Dollhouse", "Happiness") offers up another black comedy with the story of Abe (Jordan Gelber), a corpulent man-child in his 30s who lives at home with his parents (Christopher Walken, Mia Farrow), has a dysfunctional obsession with collecting toys, and proposes marriage to Miranda (Selma Blair) shortly after they meet. Rather than elevating him out of his eternal childhood, their bond only serves to further disjoint his sense of reality. With Justin Bartha, Donna Murphy.
