Paul Thomas Anderson / US, 1999 / 186 min.
Epic mosaic of mutually connected characters in search of happiness, forgiveness and meaning. in the San Fernando valley featuring an ingenious script and excellent acting Tom Cruise, Julianne Moore, Jason Robards and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Winner of the Golden Bear.
In Magnolia, Tom Cruise plays the best role in his career as a guru who sells his macho philosophy about taming women under the slogan 'Seduce and destroy!'. Magnolia plays out over 24 hours during which he, and eight other, mutually connected leads go in search of happiness, but have trouble making contact. All are trying to come to terms with their pasts.
