The only companion book to the much-anticipated follow-up to Paul Thomas Anderson's critically hailed Boogie Nights that "leaves you no doubt you are in the presence of a natural-born filmmaker."—David Ansen, Newsweek. The much-heralded writer-director deliberately withheld information about his new film during production because "I feel lately as if I know everything about a movie before I see it, and I really want the audience to discover this purely." Featuring an ensemble cast (see below), in, in an unbilled role, Tom Cruise (who called Anderson to express interest in working with him), the film is now described as "a story about family relationships and bonds that have been broken and need to be mended in one day...set in the San Fernando Valley on a day full of rain with no clouds." Magnolia: The Illustrated Screenplay includes the complete shooting script, introduction and script notes by Anderson, a photo section with about 40 photos in color, and interview with the writer/director, and complete cast and crew credits.

Got to be the longest, most frustrating movie I have ever forced myself to sit through. It felt like the 3rd hour of the movie hit and I was still asking myself, "Is this ever going to get anywhere? What am I watching?" It is a real downer and depressing movie, as well. The story keeps shifting between the characters' lives, and just when one scene finally gets to any action or point, it shifts again! If you are fortunate enough to not have had to (or made the decision to force yourself to) endure this film, I would NOT recommend putting yourself through it!
