Storyline

This day really isn't all that different than every other day, except today Ned's gay son Jonah wants to go to a college party, his wife is bringing home her elderly father to live with them, and his outrageous boss seems to have become even more crazy and demanding than would even seem possible. As his wife tries to take care of her father and reconnect with him, Ned tries to reconnect with Jonah, and then without trying, he seems to have formed a connection with his co-worker. If he can get through days like these, he should be able to get through anything else life throws at him. Written by napierslogs

'What's happening here is a huge downer for you. Add it to your list next to gay son, sucky job and wife who's over forty'
4 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

EVERY DAY resonates with audiences because it is a story that tackles some heavy themes and shows that there is light at the end of every seemingly impossible tunnel. Writer/director Richard Levine has much experience with the topics raised in this film from his broad work as a television writer. The dialogue is smart, sassy, touching and insightful, and that, coupled with a very fine cast, makes this a movie to relish.

This day really isn't all that different than every other day, except today Ned's (Live Schreiber) gay son Jonah (Ezra Miller) wants to go to a college party, his wife Jeannie (Helen Hunt) is bringing home her elderly father Ernie (Brian Dennehy) whom she has never been able to tolerate to live with them, and his outrageous boss Garrett (Eddie Izzard) seems to have become even more crazy and demanding than would even seem possible. As his wife tries to take care of her father and reconnect with him, Ned tries to reconnect with Jonah, and then without trying, he seems to have formed a connection with his co-worker Robin (Carla Gugino). Add to this Ned's younger son Ethan (Skyler Fortgang) is attempting to prepare for a violin performance and needs the support of his family, especially his gay brother. If he can get through days like these, he should be able to get through anything else life throws at him. The little miracles that happen in the hands of Levine's script are satisfying resolutions (for the moment, at least) for all the bumps in the road that occur every day.

The entire cast is strong, managing to be at times witty and caustic and at other times revealing that at the level of human emotions they are all very vulnerable, need, but survivors. This is a too often forgotten little film that is a pure pleasure to experience.
