the good girl

If you’re inclined to miss this film because it stars Jennifer Aniston, don’t! After the first 20 minutes you’ll completely forget her celebrity life and that guilty-pleasure sitcom. Aniston turns in a fabulous performance as a small-town working at a dead-end job at a Walmart rip-off and married to a stoner-house painter husband. Escape appears by the way of “Holden”, a broody coworker with whom Justine embarks on an affair, simply to ease her bordem. While at times veering towards maudlin, the film works because the cast is so strong and the camera’s eye is unflinching. Painfully funny and just plain painful—if you’ve ever wondered just how you ended up in the life you’re living, see it. [us 2002]
