The Oranges Blu-Ray + DVD Review
 


Synopsis: Fresh-squeezed laughs and sexy fun sweeten this critically-acclaimed comedy with an all-star cast, including Leighton Meester, Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt and Catherine Keener. What does it take to be truly happy? Two suburban families are about to find out when the Ostroffs' rebellious daughter Nina (Meester) returns home and starts an adulterous affair with long-time family friend David Walling (Laurie.) The outrageous scandal reaches a hilarious new heights during the holidays and makes these New Jersey neighbors tear apart more than just wrapping paper. Love is a wrecking ball headed straight for The Oranges...and it may just change all of their lives forever.

Review: The Oranges is a romantic drama that involves a quiet town and two families that have known each other forever.   One family's wild daughter returns home and falls into an affair with the father of the other family, who is incidentally her own father's best friend.  This sends all of their lives into what is seemingly a downward spiral, but is truly a path of discovery.  Through the discovery of the affair and the inevitable aftermath all people in question have to examine their lives, for better or worse.  This was a great indie film and it really touches on a lot of suburban and life issues that we should all face.   We definately recommend it.

Interest Range: Drama
