MovieLine: A man in the grip of contrition, Allen (Michael Kenneth Williams) is re-vowing amends to his wife Joy (Shirley Henderson) in very tight close-up in the opening scene of Life During Wartime. “No more cocaine,” he says. “No more crack. No more crack-cocaine.” Joy is weepy, pliant, soothing. They are tucked into a restaurant booth, celebrating what seems like a decent stretch of functional couplehood, when a waitress comes to take their order and makes off with their stability instead.
