Simple Men

Directed by Hal Hartley
United States, 1992
Comedy, Drama


It is about a man who tries to hate women. It is about his inexperienced younger brother who feels he will lack an identity until he confronts the truth of his father’s life. It is about their father who subscribes to a justice that cannot be codified. And it is about a woman who refuses to lie.
