Bubble - 5

Coleman Hough and Steven Soderberg went to a small West Virginia town on the border of Ohio and used the story of the regular people that they cast in the film to tell a story of living in a small town bubble. The story involves three workers at a doll factory. The dialogue is pretty real to life, but the story takes an interesting turn near the end and the film explores the deep emotions that are often hidden inside of people. Because it has no named actors the film seems more realistic, and although the acting is well done, the story seems contrived to make the film interesting. The film is really a character study rather than plot driven. Like the tagline says: "Another Steven Soderbergh Experience." If you like most of his early work, you can probably enjoy this film.
