Based on a short story by Alice Munro, ‘Hateship Loveship’ stars Kristen Wiig as the sheltered and homely caretaker Johanna who comes to work for a new family, only to have the teenage daughter fabricate a romance between her and the girl’s recovering addict father, played by Guy Pearce. Unfortunately, the film is woefully contrived and Wiig’s tame performance feels like just another underwhelming line on her post-’SNL’ resume.
