A Simple Plan (4¼ Stars)
There's something about this slow moving parable about human greed that makes me like it more every time I watch it. The characters in it are so human. They're you and me. Everyone would like to find $4 million in a field. I would. Wouldn't you? The problem is the consequences. There are no consequences if nobody else knows you've found the money, but even if you're determined to keep it secret, will you give yourself away? People who get rich overnight act differently. Friends and relatives suspect that something has happened.
