As a girl who was really connected to my father, I really apreciate this touching relationship between the problematic father played by Ruffalo ( brilliant ) and two gracious and independent kids. A movie who steals tears and laughs from you, thanks to the chemistry and the great actings of those three.
It holds up as a story for the actors to shine, specially Ruffalo and he does. He has a very good performance playing someone who is imbalanced, though I'm not sure how pristine that performance is throughout the whole film as he seems to be getting better. The girls and Saldaña are also a very good ensemble and what I like the most is the 80's feel throughout the whole film. It's like a Poppins on lithium, not high!
Saldaña injects some much needed humanity into this well-intentioned but deeply flawed film. The quality of Ruffalo's performance is as erratic as his character's mood swings but the general effect is undeniably touching.
