We gave it a B-

A twining, high-minded drama about four suburban families whose woes cross paths, based on short stories by A.M. Homes. Each household’s longings and itches feel arbitrarily grandiose and sometimes intrusively kooky. But the casting is just plain grand, including Patricia Clarkson, Dermot Mulroney, Glenn Close, Robert Klein, and the great Mary Kay Place.
