JOY’S REVIEW

“FRAGMENTS” is a movie that is based on Winged Creatures, which is a novel, with a great cast, including Kate Beckinsale , Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Forrest Whitaker, Jackie Earl Haley, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Triplehorn, I mean you get the point. The story is told sort of in flashback and sort of not about what happens to people’s lives once a traumatic event happens, which happens to be a shooting in a small town in a diner. It’s a great idea. This one just didn’t quite work even with the fabulous cast. It becomes so predictable and the big reveal at the end doesn’t make any sense. It really doesn’t, so in spite of good intentions and a great cast and an interesting story. Two stars.
