FOR ROSEANNA (PG -13)
Roseanna’s health is uncertain, and her greatest wish is to be buried with her family in the churchyard of her Italian village. But there’s only one vacant plot left, so her loving husband embarks on a campaign to keep everyone else in town alive until she’s laid to rest there. Paul Weiland directed this pitch-dark comedy from Saul Turteltaub’s screenplay, which is too uneven and contrived to be saved by lively performances from Jean Reno and Mercedes Ruehl.
