Little Children

(USA, 2006, 136 minutes)

A frustrated stay-at-home mother and an unemployed father start an affair in a little suburban community worried about the presence among them of a newly-released child molester. Accomplished melodrama of suburban angst that is exceptionally presented and performed, yet remains a tad too ponderous for its own good and pads out its running time with wonderful but sidetracking diversions.
