Diane's rating of the film Momma's Man

Very quiet take on what happens when the weight of responsibility gets to be too much. Lots of poignant and tragicomic moments. I especially liked the scene in which Mikey slid down the stairs. I don't know if I bought the so-called cathartic scene(s); was it a mother's comforting touch or Dante trying to "sweat out the drugs" before his test to the lilting melodies of the Indigo Girls that spurred Mikey to man up.
