A rare and little-seen venture into out-and-out comedy for Day-Lewis, here playing, per Sting’s title song, an “Englishman in New York.” For this proper yet impressionable Brit art dealer, life in America puts him through the wackiness wringer, first in After Hours-era Manhattan (with Joan Cusack and Steven Wright) and then down South to backwoods Georgia (with Harry Dean Stanton and Glenne Headly), in search of a rare Renoir painting.
