Set in 1964, "Five Corners" highlights two days in a Bronx neighborhood. The primary story concerns Turturro as he is released from prison. He's obsessed with Foster, whom he attacked prior to going to jail--in fact, he crippled her boyfriend. Foster, in peril, turns to her boyfriend who now can't be of much assistance and Robbins, an old friend turned pacifist. Robbins, in a naively convincing role, represents the sixties well--reacting to and trying to understand the turbulent era in which they live. Foster, billed as the star, may not have a ton of screen time but is very strong. And Turturro is nicely restrained in a role that might have veered into over-the-top territory. This story is quite convincing even as the film slides into a violent and melodramatic finale. But the actors have sold it!
But Shanley was not content to share this one strong plot. No!Read more ›
