Fifth about The Seventh

The Land of Steady Habits

The Land of Steady Habits: the characters portrayed in Nicole Holofcener’s little drama are so sullen, miserable, flawed, all making incredibly bad life decisions, without any good explanation, that it’s hard to care or be in any way connected to their fate. Their low-energy performances are fine for what they are supposed to be, as it’s a veteran cast working: Ben Mendelsohn is unusually quiet and small; Edie Falco, Connie Britton and Bill Camp are closer to their usual, but all are OK; the cast can’t be blamed for issues that come from the page. The film looks good, but is unremarkable at best.
