2.5 Enjoyed the movie for its quirky comedy of manners and errors. Christopher Abbott did a great James Dean. Danner and Rubinstein were terrific as the parents. My only issue was with Melanie Lynskey's voice--it is too babyish for my taste. Yes, for this role she's reverted back to the womb of her family, but I wish in general she were capable of speaking in a more resonant and less breathy tone.
The film is incredibly sweet in its overarching theme and scope, however I found the relationship between Melanie Lynskey and Christopher Abbott to be a little too "loose" for my taste in a love story -- almost untouchable, in a way, which bothered me. It has the type of younger-older theme as "The Graduate" (albeit in a much more consensual way), but I did end up wishing something resulted in the end, to my dismay.
