Synopsis [What's] important here is the power of each thread to engage viewers in thoughtful discussion.There's a certain satisfaction that can be found in a looping, tangled cinematic narrative of interwoven lives in an anonymous urban environment -- the coincidences and conflicts that elucidate the proximity of city life. This is the idea behind Tim Blake Nelson's ANESTHESIA...[T]he title implies numbness, but writer-director Tim Blake Nelson seems to want viewers to feel every last thing....The cast is strong...[An] exquisitely compressed cri de coeur about the meaning of life in a hyper-connected world...This ensemble drama set in New York City begins with a philosophy professor (Sam Waterston) getting stabbed while he's trying to buy flowers for his wife (Glenn Close). Elsewhere, his daughter-in-law (Jessica Hecht) battles cancer, a student of his (Kristen Stewart) has self-harm issues, a junkie (K. Todd Freeman) is dragged to rehab by a childhood best friend (Michael K. Williams), and a suburban wife (Gretchen Mol) longs for the city. Written and directed by Tim Blake Nelson.
