Everything Must Go
I recently reviewed Everything Must Go for Flick Feast. Will Ferrell stars in a rare straight role and he’s pretty darn good in it.
Will Ferrell stars in this adaptation of Raymond Carver’s short story ‘Why Don’t You Dance?’ and shows he can do intense dramatic acting just as well as he does his usual comedy shtick. In Everything Must Go he plays Nick Halsey, a struggling alcoholic who suffers one disappointment after another on a day that sees him descend into an alcohol fuelled gloom. Debutant Director Dan Rush adapts Carver’s five-page story neatly, never over-complicating a simple but touching movie.
