Movie Summary

Director:
Steven Soderbergh
Released:
2006
Rating:
R
Bubble is a 2006 crime drama directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film is set in a small midwestern town along the Ohio River and explores the love triangle between three co-workers at the Lee Middleton doll factory. In the movie, Martha (Debbie Doebereiner) is a simple middle-aged woman who spends all her free time caring for her elderly father. Her only friend is a younger, very shy co-worker, Kyle (Dustin Ashley). The two friends carpool together and eat lunch at the same time, but do not open up to each other about anything. When the busy holiday season comes around, the doll factory hires a seasonal employee, Rose (Misty Wilkins), a beautiful single mother. Martha dislikes Rose immediately and her opinion is compounded by Rose's treatment of Martha. Martha reluctantly agrees to babysit for Rose and is shocked when her date is revealed. When someone ends up murdered it is up to the police to decide what happened.

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Easier to admire than love, Bubble is a fascinating exercise that seems calculated to repel most audiences, which probably suits Mr. Soderbergh just fine.

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    Despite its refreshingly straightforward style and compelling performers, the movie feels encased in an invisible, filmy membrane of its own. Soderbergh keeps his characters on one...

    Likeable if unexciting little tale.
