probably saw Emile Hirsch's remarkable performance in INTO THE WILD last year,
or his hollow one in SPEED RACER this year. Well, he certainly started his
career off on the right foot with this little gem! Sigourney Weaver delivers
one of the best performances of her career in this bitter-sweet dramedy about
family, and coping with the loss of a popular teenage boy. It's more of an
'ensemble' coming of age tale that features the growth of each and everyone in
the family. It's heart warming, odd, a bit sad, a bit funny, and resonates long
after watching it.
