American Fable is ambitious, maybe too much so sometimes, but there's an intense pleasure in the boldness of the film's style.

I believed the lives of these people. I believed they'd do the drastic things they do in the face of crisis. I ached for them when things went terribly wrong and rooted for them when there were glimmers of hope.
You should see this movie. Please.
We get three distinct story lines, with some overlap between two of the main threads.
