the human stain
Director: Robert Benton (Kramer vs. Kramer)
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Nicole Kidman, Ed Harris, Gary Sinise, Wentworth MillerIn Brief: Critically reviled at the time of its release — especially for something that was clearly Oscar-bait — Robert Benton's The Human Stain (2003) isn't so much a bad movie as it's an underwhelming one. It's a film that never takes off due to Benton's decidedly old-fashioned filmmaking and its overbearing attempt to be Important. The story of an aged professor (Anthony Hopkins) discharged for racism (despite being secretly black himself) and his affair with a younger woman (Nicole Kidman) would have been better served by embracing its soapy underpinnings than by taking a high-toned literary approach.
