Lonergan is and was ahead of his time. This is drama for the future. Devastating, hilarious, subtle, but all in broad strokes. 10/10
A surprisingly insightful mom drama.
Ruffalo is amazing in this.
The quality of acting really brought the most out of this story line. Very enjoyable and realistic portrayal of our underlying faults and trying to get life's balance right is harder than we think!
nat bad.....but lack of somethin special that make u remember this flick
Only a small and simple story, happening in a small and simple town, can portray characters as big and complex as these ones.
In my opinion, the gold standard of the family drama. Lonergan is very Ozu-esque.
