Happiness Isolation... alienation... happiness. In America they all go hand in hand. Buy a new TV and you will be happy. Still not happy? Experience alienation. Can't afford a new TV? Then live in isolation. 'Be Happy', and if that doesn't work, pretend to make it work.

For the characters in Todd Solondz' subversively funny new film Happiness , the struggle to attain such a state is fraught with the perils both heartbreaking and hilarious. Painting a broad portrait of contemporary suburbia and the demons that haunt it, Happiness delivers a provocative take on the meaning and value of happiness in America today.
