I saw "Paper Man" recently in the favor of seeing Jeff Daniels act in a newer movie. And it is a job well done.
This is fantastic indie movie and a strong directorial/writing debut for Kieran and Michele Mulroney. The casting is interesting and diverse adding in the likes of Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, and Kieran Culkin (who may I add surprised me very much). Each actor turns in their roles well for what they're meant to be. And I must say the film explores many intriguing concepts of one's mind, suggesting also how two people can be so different in age and still relate to how the other is feeling. It is heartfelt and very sentimental. The friendship between Daniels and Stone is sweet and quite emotionally driven. The roles of Reynolds and Culkin add another level to the movie's superiority because they change the film from being "your everyday drama among friends and family" to a individualistic adventure for one's identity in the cruel place that is the world.
**A twist toward the end made me give this movie another bonus. It was unpredictable (at least for me) and allowed everything to tie together.
It's definitely above average and a movie I plan on watching many more times in the future. Plus, Jeff Daniels always hands in a great act.
