Robert Altman directed this bittersweet ensemble piece about an eccentric and entangled group of family and friends living in the Deep South. Jewel Mae "Cookie" Orcutt ( Patricia Neal ) is the widowed matriarch of a small-town Mississippi family, which includes her nieces Camille ( Glenn Close ), a pretentious would-be artist staging an amateur production of Salome at a local church, and Cora Julianne Moore ), her less than enthusiastic leading lady. Willis ( Charles S. Dutton ), the caretaker of Cookie's rambling mansion, tries to persuade her sweet but aimless grand-niece, Emma ( Liv Tyler ), to move in with her, but she's more interested in her on-again, off-again romance with local cop Jason ( Chris O'Donnell ). Typical of Altman 's work, Cookie's Fortune weaves together a number of different plot lines with relaxed grace, and features an impressive cast, including Ned Beatty , Lyle Lovett , and Courtney B. Vance . — Mark Deming
