Customer Review

on January 23, 2001
Robert Altman has done it again. With a terrific ensemble of wonderful actors headed by Glenn Close, Julianne Moore, Charles S. Dutton, Liv Tyler and Patricia Neal he has crafted "Cookie's Fortune," a dark comedy brimming with laughs and plenty of heart as written by the talented Anne Rapp. When local matriarch "Cookie" (Neal) commits suicide, her image-obsessed niece, Camille (Close), rearranges the scene of the "crime" to resemble a robbery/murder so that the stigma of suicide won't mar the family's good name. Camille talks her kind but simple sister, Cora (Moore, in a beautiful performance), into going along with the ruse despite the fact that Cookie's dear friend and handyman (Dutton) is charged with a crime he didn't commit. Ned Beatty, Courtney B. Vance, Liv Tyler and Chris O'Donnell round out the ensemble. For those of you looking for a quirky, well made film, check this one out, you won't be disappointed.
