You Can Count On Me

You Can Count On Me, written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan, stars Laura Linney and Mark Ruffalo as imperfect siblings in this perfect little movie. While each is flawed, it seems that, at least initially, only the Linney character is attempting to do the right thing. It is just that when she lost her parents early, married a loser, had a kid and now works for an asinine clueless boss; she finds it tricky keeping her life from spinning out of control. The story follows the return of her beloved slacker brother through his prolonged stay until the bittersweet ending where she finally takes control of her life. Matthew Broderick is truly surprising and convincing as the boss from hell. Like life some of the most terrible moments are laced with laughter.
