To Sleep With Anger is foremost a film dedicated to capturing the nuances of real-world intimacy. “Why don’t you shut the door and come on over here?” Gideon, smiling wide and patting the bed, says to Suzie. She stares at him silently and exits the room to tend to their grandson — but softens her rebuff with a knowing wink. This brief scene communicates, better than many films devoted solely to the subject, the delights and disappointments of enduring unions.
