Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I thought I should give it a try. It is basically one of those typical quirky indie movies dealing with a dysfunctional familly. Honestly, at first, it took me a while to get into the story since none of the characters are really likeable.

The patriarch (Jeff Daniels) of an eccentric Brooklyn family claims to once have been a great novelist, but he has settled into a teaching job. When his wife (Laura Linney) discovers a writing talent of her own, jealousy divides the family, leaving two teenage sons to forge new relationships with their parents. Linney's character begins dating her younger son's tennis coach. Meanwhile, Daniels' character has an affair with the student his older son is pursuing.

Characters I can't stand (44 characters items)

" I hate the dad so much. I've definitely met people just like him and I hate all of them. They put people off reading with their disgusting pretentious attitude and as a book lover, that really pisses me off. Of course there's also his horrible views on women which he passes off to his oldest son, who is as detestable as his father for most of the story. The movie itself is very good. "
