on many levels, describes the human condition by MBreslau September 18, 2012 - 11:27 AM PDT
It seems to be the story of an adrenaline freak trying to settle down. At first, he digs a financial hole for himself...
It also is the story of a father trying to bond with his recalcitrant, rebellious son...
The daughter is adorable ( a scene stealer ) and very wise for one so young.
The dead wife makes several appearances as memory and reality overlap.
I don't understand why this movie has gotten such weak reviews. It's better than that.
