Product Description

Arlen Faber is the reclusive author of Me and God, a book that has redefined spirituality for an entire generation and has been translated into over 100 languages. On the eve of the 20th anniversary of his still wildly popular book, Arlen is still sought after as the man who has all the answers. Arlen's life collides with Elizabeth a single mom raising her seven year-old son, and Kris, a young man fresh out of rehab who is searching for meaning. Both Elizabeth and Kris are hopeful that Arlen has the answers, but the truth is, he hasn't got a clue.

Lauren Graham and Jeff Daniels are great, as they are in their current TV series Parenthood and The Newsroom, respectively. The film is a good simple story, enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars We all need an Arlen Faber in our lives 4 Jun. 2012
By Nancy - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie has been sitting on my shelf for over two months. I think initially, I was turned off because of the whole Indie thing. Independent movies never hit the right cord with me so on an "I am not leaving the house no matter what" Sunday, I popped it in.

I loved this movie.

There I said it; I actually loved an Independent Film.

Jeff Daniels plays a foul-mouthed spiritual author who took over 10% of the G-O-D market by writing a book on the conversation that he had with the Almighty. Because of the fame and the zealots, he has lived a life of isolation. He has never spoken publically about his book; he has never opened himself up in that way. His publicist hates him, he hides action figures in a cabinet and is paranoid about anyone touching his piano. That is until he is in excruciating back pain and literally crawls into the office of a chiropractor and his world is opened up in un-expectant ways.

I would hate to say that Lauren Graham and Lou Taylor Pucci are the supporting cast because they each hold their own and then some to Jeff Daniels. Each storyline -- of a single mother starting out on her own and a bookstore owner fresh out of rehab dealing with an alcoholic father - hold the same fascination as the reclusive author. Each person is searching for answers in a world that only offers more questions and challenges.

This movie is very funny, very over the top in language and very sincere in the message of needing people to help us over our hurtles. In a way, we all need a Jeff Daniels / Arlen Faber in our lives -a man that does not have all the answers but sure knows how to give good insight when it is needed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great acting, great script, mediocre idea 10 July 2009
By Lisa the history professor - Published on

I thought Jeff Daniels was superb, and all of his co-stars were right on with their performances. The script was well-done, and the timing of the scenes was crisp. In the beginning, I was riveted. But I began to see things unravel as we got to the end, and I think the movie lost its way a bit in the last few minutes. This was a hard topic to tackle on film, and the actors and the script writers did a great job of almost carrying the overall theme--which was, in hindsight a bit unconventional--off. In the end they could not wrap it all up with a bow, but that would have been too trite and not fitting for this quirky movie anyway. I enjoyed the film, and it made for a relaxing and fun evening at home. How cool to see this right on my computer too!

Was desperately searching for something to watch while being home sick.
I had never heard of a "Pre-theatrical trailer", but was intrigued! I watched the actual trailer and saw that this flick starred Lauren Graham and Jeff Daniels - which sounded/looked like the beginnings of something really, really great!
I pondered the price watched the trailer again and went with my gut!
I rented it!!
I LOVED it!!
I highly recommend it and can't wait to spread the word!
I also can't wait to see it again!
No spoilers here - it reminded me alot of the movie Once.
It was a very simple but sweet plot that almost everyone should be able to see themselves in one way or another. It had love story, family, drama, parenthood, romance, realty, addictive behaviors, but it also had laughter!! It also reminds me of As Good as It Gets. But, this movie is also completely original - when I compare it to those - it's more of a feeling.
This movie is BEAUTIFUL in many ways!
I hope others give it a watch and feel the same!

4.0 out of 5 stars Feel good 21 Jan. 2012
By SueQ - Published on
I really loved this movie. All the actors were spot on. The ending felt a little weak compared to the rest of the movie but still found myself smiling after it was over.

5.0 out of 5 stars A movie with a Big Heart 13 July 2009
By Rachel - Published on
Verified Purchase
This movie may not be perfect in all aspects, but it is full of sweet and heart-breaking moments that keep you rooting for its many underdogs all the way--even the harsh and jaded main character, Arlen. The chemistry between the actors is flawless, without exception. The ending is satisfying in that it doesn't feel the need to tie up all the loose ends and it leaves you wanting more. I have heard it compared to As Good as it Gets, but I prefer this version. While it lacks the glossy main stream production qualities of AGAIG, it makes up for it in its every day heroes that are much more relatable.
