Storyline Heading
Nine intertwined stories that take place on one clement day, during which all kinds of torrents are unleashed. Parents and children, anger and forgiveness, television and real life, longing and loss, chance and volition, sunshine and storms find themselves in collision on this day that builds through a series of accidents to an unexpected phenomenon.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - Adults with a taste for powerful drama--and a strong dose of the experimental--should thoroughly enjoy Paul Thomas Anderson's thoughtful and absorbing film. Those who find it difficult to sit through long films would best steer clear of this three-hour-plus one. The film is inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading
Excellent
The idea of the inexplicable runs throughout Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia, coming to a head in the final scene, when an event beyond reason unites the film's wide-cross section of sad and lonely people living in Southern California's San Fernando Valley. The event is way out there, but by that point I was willing to go anywhere the boundlessly imaginative Anderson was leading. That's the sign of a true film artist at work, and the proof is the moving, magnificent masterwork that is Magnolia.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
On one random day in the San Fernando Valley, a dying father, a young wife, a male caretaker, a famous lost son, a police officer in love, a boy genius, an ex-boy genius, a game show host and an estranged daughter will each become part of a dazzling multiplicity of plots, but one story.

Through a collusion of coincidence, chance, human action, shared media, past history and divine intervention they will weave and warp through each other's lives on a day that builds to an unforgettable climax. Some will seek forgiveness, others escape. Some will mend frayed bonds, others will be exposed.
