Hateship Loveship
First screened in December 2014
Director: Liza Johnson. Cast: Kristen Wiig, Guy Pearce, Hailee Steinfeld, Nick Nolte, Sami Gayle, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Christine Lahti, Lauren Swinney. Screenplay: Mark Poirier (based on the short story "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage" by Alice Munro).

Twitter Capsule: Dogville-by-Sarah Polley premise gives way to nondescript miniaturism in Good Girl vein. Steinfeld subtly strong.

VOR:   Even more than quality, this is the department where Hateship stubbornly refuses to come alive. Like too many of Wiig's films, you just wouldn't notice it missing.
