Diminished Capacity Trailer

I thought today would be the perfect summer day to feature this wonderful indie film from Sundance. Diminished Capacity stars Matthew Broderick as a journalist suffering from memory loss who returns to his rural hometown and runs into his Alzheimer's-impaired uncle, played by Alan Alda, and old girlfriend, played by Virginia Madsen. A fun adventure begins when they discover a rare baseball card that could be worth a fortune. As was the case with Bottle Shock as well, I unfortunately missed this film at Sundance, but this trailer makes me wonder whether it was actually a mildly entertaining indie feature. If you're looking for something charming to enjoy on this lovely day, then take a look at Diminished Capacity.

Watch the trailer for Diminished Capacity:

Diminished Capacity is directed by actor Terry Kinney as his first feature film with a script penned by first-time writer Sherwood Kiraly. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is being distributed by IFC Films. Diminished Capacity arrives in limited theaters starting on July 4th this summer. The poster is featured below.

    haha! this looks great. Awesome to see Alan Alda in something. It has been far too long.

    A Matthew Broderick film that actually looks good. Alda Looks good in this as well. I'll watch it.
  • Looks good.
  • It's good to see smaller, quality films like thing amongst the huge marquee movies. I'd heard of this and just recently read the synopsis. Except for the cast, it doesn't sound too interesting on paper. But judging from this trailer, they've hit the perfect tone for the film and may have a bit of a sleeper here. I'll be seeing Hancock on the 4th of July weekend, and maybe Wanted or Wall-E, whichever one of the two I don't get to see this coming weekend. But whenever this and The Wackness make it around to my area I'll do my best to make it out to my local "indie film" theater and check them out.
  • Definitely up for a movie starring Matthew Broderick that is actually good. I have not seen a good one since Election.
