The Secret Lives of Dentists

Director Alan Rudolph (Choose Me, Afterglow) helms this quietly powerful story of domestic dischord. Top-shelf actors Campbell Scott and Hope Davis star as a happily married pair of dentists. Trouble begins to brew in paradise when hubby suspects his wife of infidelity. Our protagonist's upper middle class guilt boils over when he allows a foul-mouthed patient (Denis Leary) to become his invisible voice of conscience. Leary is quite funny, and the story takes some powerful turns, but all involved are hampered by a script that pulls too many punches and ends up feeling a bit unresolved. 105 minutes
