A Simple Plan ★★★★

Now this is a thriller that will cause your teeth to grind and your toes to curl. A Simple Plan places real, human characters in the proverbial 'what if' situation which, without giving anything way, is anything but simple. All of the performances are absolutely solid, but it is Billy Bob Thornton's work that is particularly impressive. Thornton, Paxton, Fonda and director Sam Raimi absolutely enhance what is twisting, punchy material from author Scott B. Smith.
