Regarding Henry
First screened some time in 1991 / Most recently screened in November 2015
Director: Mike Nichols. Cast: Harrison Ford, Annette Bening, Mikki Allen, Bill Nunn, Robin Bartlett, Donald Moffat, Rebecca Miller, Bruce Altman, Aida Linares, Elizabeth Wilson, Julie Follansbee, Stanley Swerdlow, Peter Appel, John Leguizamo, James Rebhorn, Brian Smiar, May Quigley, Margorie Monaghan, Emily Wachtel, J.J. Abrams. Screenplay: J.J. Abrams, seriously.

Twitter Capsule: Bitter take on moneyed New York occasionally holds interest. Otherwise, mawkish, inconsistent, replete with cheats.

VOR:   Of passing interest to devotees of Nichols or Ford, though the director seems unusually stymied by a flat, dishonest script, and the star even more at sea.
