Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia is a sprawling, operatic mosaic of American lives intertwined. In a single day, nine stories connect and disconnect through violence, love, Game Shows, Biblical floods, coincidence, weather, sing-alongs, self-help seminars and quests for redemption. Magnolia is an epic film: darkly comic, emotional and extravagant. An ensemble cast as good as any navigates this challenging, sometimes difficult film that earned Golden Bear Best Film honors at the 2000 Berlin Film Festival and three Academy Award nominations. Magnolia is a modern-day classic, as hard to define as it is to forget.
