A Broken Sole

Movies
3 out of 5 stars
Screenwriter Susan Charlotte evokes the psychic scars of the WTC attacks in a trio of loosely connected, two-character pieces: On September 11, a pushy film professor (Light) demands that a cranky shoemaker (Aiello) fix her “broken sole.” Subsequently, a neurotic cabbie counsels a harried fare, and two near strangers—a dyslexic director hung up on palindromes and a struggling middle-aged actress—stumble through an awkward morning-after. The metaphors are obvious, and three schematic, stagy one-act plays don’t equal a cohesive drama, but there’s no dearth of talking points.
