    MANY STORYLINES BUT ONLY ONE 'STORY'

    'May you get everything you wish for.' This is actually used as a curse by one of the central characters in this unusually gratifying film by indie director Jill Sprecher.Five characters interweave in plotlines that tangle and untangle in unexpected ways. Alan Arkin is especially effective as the office drudge who delivers the afore-mentioned curse, and Matthew McConaughey begins with a charcater we've seen him play before, but takes him in a totally new direction.<BR/>The futility of making plans seems to be the 'one thing' these stories are about.This one will lead to some great conversations.

    What is Fate?

    I enjoyed it for the storylines and the acting, but only so far (and my wife fell asleep). It was a 2.5 star movie, I thought. It wasn't quite as profound as it aspired to be. I could have loved this movie but something held me back. For want of a better word, the movie tried to pursue a ¿unified theory¿, but I think it just didn¿t bring the message home. I just didn¿t buy into it fully. Maybe the characters weren¿t appealing enough. I didn¿t get the sense of a wonderful universe in which we are all touched by a comforting ¿fate¿. Rather it left me feeling the opposite: that the characters were essentially solitary figures, and if there was any unifying force it was just a bitterly cold wind that blowing through us.
