THE UPSIDE OF ANGER
8.30PM, FOXTEL DRAMA/ ROMANCE ★★★
A mother of four very gifted, very different daughters reacts to her husband leaving the family by hitting the bottle and lashing out at the world. As finely (over) wrought a comedy-drama as Hollywood is capable of these days, thanks in no small part to the brilliant lead performance by Joan Allen. Top support work from an undeniably good Kevin Costner and a young ensemble featuring Erika Christensen and Evan Rachel Wood.
