Punch-Drunk Love

Punch-Drunk Love Winner of the Best Director Prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival. ''This misfit love story, of disconnected people, trying to find one another in an antagonistic world, is a comedy of discomfort and rage that turns unexpectedly sweet and pure.'' A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Adam Sandler gives an amazing and unusual performance as Barry Egan, a socially impaired owner of a small novelty business, who is dominated by seven sisters and is unlikely to find love, unless it finds him. When a mysterious woman comes into his life, his emotions go haywire, fluctuating between uncontrollable rage, lust and self-doubt. ''PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE leaves you feeling a little dizzy and overcome by a pleasing, unplaceable sensation...'' Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

From the writer and director of Boogie Nights and Magnolia, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is a dark, lovely and unique film experience.
