“Shattered” is a ladies’ movie, but it’s also a social issue picture. All of this centers around deep family secrets that have yet to surface, but are just on the verge of erupting. You’ve got down-low homosexuals, corrupt fathers and crazy kids. I feel like the club kid that Bill Hader used to play reading off Southern Gothic tropes. Tackling serious issues with a creepy regional family has been old hat since the days of Tennessee Williams. What saves the day is the cast that elevates the material. Ray Wise and Molly Burnett have never been better. Pick it up if you have the time.
