The Twenty-First Century

Diminished Capacity [2008]

“Time is the guest of the north.”

Matthew Broderick leads a talented cast in this  almost forgotten movie about a journalist suffering from memory loss who travels to his hometown in order to reconnect with his sick uncle (Alan Alda) and his old high school flame (Virginia Madsen). Together they travel back in town to sell a rare baseball card. If you’re a fan of small independant films, I suggest you check this one out; it’s enjoyable, and the cast couldn’t be more likable (especially Alan Alda who’s never been better). A thin story, but fun nevertheless. Highlight: the scenes at the memorabilia market are a hoot!

 Rating: 2.5/4
