Polanski's 'Carnage' unmasks the baser side of good parental intentions
VENICE, Italy (AP) ' The most memorable scene in Roman Polanski's new film "Carnage" belongs to Oscar-winner Kate Winslet.
Just ask her kids. Winslet says they are still talking about the day she had to projectile vomit on set.
Winslet portrays a mother who sets out to settle a dispute over a playground fight involving her son. But she literally can't stomach the accusations of the other mother, played by Jodie Foster.
"Carnage" is a sort of "Lord of the Flies" for the parental set ' where civilized intentions go horribly awry as each character reveals their baser sides while trying to settle a playground dispute.
It is based on a play by Yasmina Reza.
