Following the epic scale of BOOGIE NIGHTS, Paul Thomas Anderson wanted to write and shoot something "small and intimate," but somehow the script blossomed into one of his most sprawling and ambitious character-driven epics; a tale of fractured families and relationships. Interweaving stories involving a dying husband and father (Jason Robards); his young, neurotic wife (Julianne Moore); his estranged son (Tom Cruise); his private nurse (Philip Seymour Hoffman); his game show host colleague (Philip Baker Hall); an ex-contestant (William H. Macy); the host's daughter (Melora Walters) and a police officer (John C. Reilly) build to a cathartic crescendo and surreal denouement. DIR/SCR/PROD Paul Thomas Anderson; PROD JoAnne Sellar. U.S., 1999, color, 188 min. RATED R
