Wonderful World 2009

Wonderful World: In this sometimes moving dark comedy, Broderick plays Ben-a failed childrens folk singer and less-than-extraordinary weekend dad. Deeply cynical, Bens sole pleasure in life is derived from chess games with his Senegalese roommate Ibou. When Ibou is suddenly struck ill and an insensitive municipal employee exacerbates the emergency situation, Bens pessimistic worldview seems unequivocally confirmed. But when Ibous sister Khadi takes his place in their apartment, what starts as an awkward living arrangement becomes something more, and Ben finds that cynicism may be all a matter of perspective.
