A lot happens at once to Sammy, a single mom living in the Catskill town of her birth, where her parents died in a car crash when she was small.

Excellent script with great characters and dialog. That's the real treasure of the movie and it knows it. I'll be honest and say the cinematography is quite basic but it works for the subject matter because it keeps you focused on the characters and the story, much like in Casablanca. It's an excellent character drama that's well worth seeing.

On paper, I can't help but think every action, every line of dialogue must've come across as incredibly banal, but when seen performed by Linney, Ruffalo and Culkin - who are by the way amazing in this - all these little moments resonate with remarkable truth and honesty. The occasional hilarity of it all only makes the film all the more endearing. A solid debut well worth the watch.

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Simple story well told. A movie that breathes, that lets you in, doesn't force itself on you.

Well-written and well-acted low-key drama about the importance of liking people for who they are.

Quiet, sweet, and unassuming. It could have easily been a run-of-the-mill, sappy mess. It's not. Great characters and a refreshingly un-Hollywood portrayal of a brother/sister relationship. Ruffalo creates a really memorable character in Terry, the...see...I was going to call him a "well-intentioned drifter" (I wouldn't have blamed you for rolling your eyes) but that's not accurate, nor would it do justice to Ruffalo's portrayal of him. You simply haven't seen a character quite like this before.
