A Simple Plan ★★★★½

Film Triplets Project

What happens when a good person has their morals tested? At what point are they no longer a good person, or does that ever change?

A Simple Plan seems unique to me in the way it handled its premise. Bill Paxton consistently feels like he's supposed to be sympathised with throughout. He's put into difficult situations and at no point is it easy to say "No, you went too far".

Billy Bob Thornton's performance is incredible. It reminded me of his performance as Lorne Malvo from the Fargo series, in that it's in no way similar, and I find that remarkable.
