The Heights

An impressive cast (Glenn Close, James Marsden, Jesse Bradford, Isabella Rossellini) navigates 24 hours in the life of New York City. Like Magnolia and countless other films before it, this ensemble drama gives us a scattering of characters, all of whom will eventually intersect. The dialogue-driven film concentrates mostly on New York's theatrical elite, led by Ms. Close as a brittle drama teacher. The film isn't wildly cinematic (having been inspired by a one-act play), but the emotional drama and character development lend plenty of twists and turns to the smart narrative. 93 minutes
