On an ordinary day, a deranged man goes on a rampage in a diner and randomly shoots the customers. The survivors of the tragic episode are deeply affected by the shooting, each having a different reaction: the youngest, Anne Hagen, becomes popular at school telling her version of the shooting; her friend Jimmy Jaspersen becomes mute and closes himself to the outer world; waitress Carla Davenport neglects her baby and has several vulgar relationships with men; Dr. Bruce Laraby loses his self-confidence and tries an experimental treatment; and the compulsive gambler Charlie Archenault believes that he is lucky in the game and gambles all his money, but he has a jinx.

The story revolves around five characters who are impacted by a shooting at a diner. Great illustration how the impact of witnesssing violence effects different people different ways in order to cope. I thought it depicted the effects of trauma and post trauma really well.

This is a really dumb and terrible movie.

It was O.K for a home movie. I was entertained. But it was NOT worth a long library wait or the
price to rent from a Red Box.

Good - Fragments (2008) 100 min. Originally titled “Winged Creatures”. The story revolves around a group of characters who share a horrific incident in witnessing a mad man’s murder spree in a local diner. The film focuses on Dakota Fanning as the child of the man that was gunned down, Kate Beckinsale as the mother who seems to be neglecting her baby, Forest Whitaker who’s dealing with his gambling addiction and Guy Pearce, the doctor who, before going to the hospital to begin his day, inadvertently opened the diner door to the mad man who’ll end up shooting the place up. All stories are powerful and resonate quite well except for Guy Pearce’s story, which doesn’t make any sense at all. Then again, neither does a mad man shooting up a diner.
