Its the Rage is a 1999 film version of Keith Reddins play "The Alarmist" about three interconnected stories and how handguns affect each of the nine people involved. The film is James D. Sterns first time directing a feature, and boasts an all-star cast.


ALL THE RAGE takes a satirical and poignant look at one gay man's obsessive pursuit of physical, sexual, and romantic perfection. Christopher Bedford is everyone's fantasy. He's gorgeous, young, clever, rich, and above all, totally buffed and every boy in Boston seems to want him. At thirty-one, he's gliding through life, celebrating himself as the 90's gay playboy ideal, without ever realizing what a mess he's become.


Handguns figure in the intertwining lives of nine people. Warren (Jeff Daniels) shoots his wife Helens (Joan Allen) lover and his defense is that he thought he was shooting an intruder. She leaves him; and her lawyer (Andre Braugher) helps her get a job with a nutty, reclusive computer wizard (Gary Sinise) who waves a pistol about, sometimes at Helen. Tennel (Josh Brolin), the computer geeks ex-assistant, lands a video-store job and is smitten by Annabel Lee (Anna Paquin), an aggressive street kid who likes complaining about men to her pistol-packing psychotic brother (Giovanni Ribisi) to set him off. In secret, Annabel starts an affair with the lawyer, but things are complicated when the lawyers gay lover (David Schwimmer) finds out. Meanwhile a cop (Robert Forster) stays on Warrens tail.
