While the cast and directing proves a job well done, especially by Robert De Niro, Paul Dano, and director Paul Weitz, the common movie-goer would be expected not to finish watching this film. Admittedly not perfect but the sentimentality that emanates from it will lower your emotional threshold for drama.

After watching this film:
You might want to look at your own relationships.

For your consideration;
  • Acting: Robert De Niro as Jonathan Flynn
  • Acting: Paul Dano as Nick Flynn
  • Directing: Paul Weitz
