Reign Over Me
2007, 124 min. Written & directed by Mike Binder.
Charlie Fineman (Adam Sandler) has lost touch with reality and is in deep depression after the loss of his family in the 9/11 tragedy. He reconnects with his former college roommate, now a dentist, Alan Johnson (Don Cheadle), who is experiencing a crisis of his own with career and family issues. Deeply affecting, and well worth watching. One of the few Adam Sandler films that I have been able to sit through! Also stars Liv Tyler and Jada Pinkett Smith. View the record for Reign Over Me.
