Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571197922, Paperback)

Winner by unanimous vote of the International Critics Prize at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival, Todd Solondz's Happiness paints a broad portrait of contemporary suburbia and the demons that haunt it.

At its center are three sisters -- Joy, Trish, and Helen -- and the men in their lives: an unreliable boyfriend, a husband who is a therapist, and an anonymous starker, who turns out to be a neighbor. The most troubled of the men may be Bill, the therapist who is also Trish's husband, as he struggles with his desires for his son Billy's pubescent classmates. When the police begin to close in, everyone's lives -- and everyone's relationships -- are changed forever.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:24:03 -0400)

A dark comedy that centers around three sisters struggling to achieve happiness and middle class perfection.
