Twitter Capsule: Fat City, lightly sugared. Angles on disability a little mixed. Kovacs and actors offer up an engaging mood and story.

VOR:   Might seem even rarer now than it did then: a modestly scaled but consistently, quietly surprising portrait of a cohort that's both rock solid and precarious. Elegantly structured.
