Punch-Drunk Love, 2002, 95 minutes, USA, Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson

Rated R

Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia) won the Best Director prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival for this whimsical portrait of Barry Egan (Adam Sandler), a sheepish salesman of novelty toilet plungers. When Barry makes the wrong phone call, he inadvertently becomes entangled with an intimidating outfit from Utah that extorts him for money. All the while, Barry navigates a new love in his life and purchases bulk quantities of Healthy Choice pudding cups. The film also stars Emily Watson, Luis Guzmán and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
