    Nice little indie film this, from director Kenneth Lonergan, who also wrote/co-wrote Gangs of New York, Analyze This and Analyze That. This is his directorial debut and a fine one it is too!

    It tells the story of a brother who returns home to see his sister and the events that take place during his stay. Around this, various relationships are explored, between adults and children. Although primarily a drama, there are also a few gags in there.

    The characters are great - I particularly liked Matthew Broderick's character as the weird, obsessive boss. You would definitely not want to work for this man! :D

    The film has had fantastic reviews from both critics and viewers, which I would agree with.

    IMDB page is here: http://us.imdb.com/Title?0203230

    The R1 DVD transfer is pretty good with decent contrast and colour saturation. There is a little grain throughout but nothing distracting.

    Sadly, sound is only Dolby Digital 2.0 but as this is the only release available, it's worth putting up with, particularly as this is primarily a film involving character development and dialogue (which is very clear on the soundtrack).

    There are a few sparse extras on the DVD: a trailer, some talent profiles, and a featurette.

    Definitely one to check out! :)

    I think the whole pace of the movie is slow. It's a bit like The Good Girl in that respect. These types of movies tend to be that kind of pace and personally I find it refreshing. Kind of a mini-series in a movie :)

    I agree with SG that this is a worthwhile view. Though for I fear many people would rather wait for its appearance as a late night C4 or B2 weekend movie. This would be unfortunate as the story is definitely to be enjoyed and empathised by both genders as it meanders through both intra- and inter-relationships.
    You get; sibling quibles, child raising dilemmas and work sexual/relations :)devil: ) and attrite religious reasoning within relationship commitments all rolled in a neat freschetta base of small town specular gaze.
    In short, a singles or couples movie that doesn't leave you diabetic:)

    Yes, but you obviously do not.
    Are you still losing soap in the shower? Oh, no sorry, according to general chat you're employing a lady boy now for felching duties:rolleyes: :D
