5.0 out of 5 stars Just about as good as movies get., 13 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: You Can Count On Me [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
This film is about the relationship between a pair of adult siblings who have an unusual bond. This bond has been fostered by a childhood which was scarred by their parents' death in a car crash. Subsequently the brother played by Mark Ruffalo is a drifter many years later who, after being in trouble many times decides to visit his sister (Laura Linney) in a sleepy, almost comatose town in middle America. Given this synopsis one may think there is nothing much going for this film but to disregard it without seeing it is like dismissing Good Will Hunting because its about maths. You can count on me is superbly written by Keith Lonergan and features truly outstanding performances by the two main protaganists: Ruffalo and Linney, not to mention Matthew Broderick who is excellent as Linneys boss. Its not often one leaves the cinema and feels truly touched but this film certainly did that for me. If only more films could be as intelligent and genuinely emotive as this.
