A Quick Tip by Trekscribbler

Largely a science fiction and/or action and/or blockbuster comedy person, I still read the newspaper reviews on YOU CAN COUNT ON ME, a small film from Paramount Classics that was greeted warmly by critics across the US. When it was released at the local Blockbuster, I noticed that it was rarely unavailable (I would suspect that was due to its limited release), so I picked it up. Immediately, I was struck by the emotional story of a dysfunctional brother & sister. I was so captivated by the performances (Laura Linney DESERVED the Oscar) that I had to watch the film a second time b/c I couldn't believe something so grand could be accomplished on so small a scale. Sure ... maybe it's a chick flick (no offense intended) ... but it's in my personal collection, and I give it my highest recommendation.
