Well acted and with an engaging sense of the characters - I may not understand why they each do what they do...infact, THEY might not even understand why they do some of the things they do. But somehow we all know that doing is sometimes better than the alternative. The characters seem to genuinely like eachother - and I came to like them, too. Even the lady who delivered the paper & just came in to say "Hi, you're door was open".
Always having a plan highly over rated - sometimes it's OK to just do the next right thing..

I really enjoyed this story of human beings, family, community, and the motivations we have for doing what we do. Great movement in unity here.

An alright movie for a rainy day. I'm not quite sure what Doug thought the outcome would be of his relationship with the stripper. It seems he just needed to get away from his family life in Indiana but why choose to assist this young person? I know the obvious implication from his wife's details concerning their daughter but this did not seem to ring true with him. I enjoyed the fact that the movie ended somewhat realistically. However, it may been a better filn if the reason why the wife was home bound was explored more throughly (actually, at all).

It starts out looking like a film by Jim Jarmusch with its musical score, quirky characters, and awkward situations. Then it kind of evolves into itself becoming something better. You'll see little snippets of Tony Soprano when Gandolfini gets steamed >LOL<

The story of loss of a loved one, its effects on a mother and father and helping one's fellow man. A nice change of pace for James (Soprano) Gandolfini. Good supporting roles from Melissa Leo (from Homocide) and Kristen Stewart.

VERY WELL ACTED!!! A very "Human" story about a long time married couple, dealing with the "Post Trauma" world after the death of their daughter. It was slow moving, but very rewarding! Great performances by all three characters.

Good - Welcome to the Rileys (2010) 110 min. James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo play a married couple that are trying cope with the loss of their teenage daughter and find solstice in a prostitute played by Kristen Stewart. Good story and performances make this a winner.
