Storyline

In the late 70's, in Boston, the bipolar Cameron "Cam" Stuart lives with his mulatto wife Maggie and their daughters Amelia and Faith in an isolated house in the countryside. When Cam is fired from his job, he has a mental breakdown and Maggie is forced to institutionalize him. When he is released, he moves to a small apartment while Maggie works to support the children. She decides to apply to an MBA to improve her income and she is accepted by the Columbia University in New York. She asks Cam to take care of the girls for eighteen months and he agrees despite his fears. Maggie moves to New York and Cam is responsible for Amelia and Faith education. Will the scheme work?

Quotes

[first lines]
Amelia Stuart: [narrating] My father was diagnosed manic depressive in 1967. He'd been going around Cambridge in a fake beard calling himself Jesus John Harvard. When he got better, he started working in public television in Boston. He met my mother there. He walked up and took her picture. On their first date, he took her on a driving tour of New England and told her all about his nervous breakdowns. She didn't care. She said it was a crazy time.

I had no expectation before watching this movie, and i'm very glad that i did. there weren't a moment where i didn't have a smile on my face.

Mark Ruffalo was very remarkable. this is probably his best acting i have ever seen. the kids in the movie were also incredible. they reminded me of my little sisters. Although i felt that the movie was a little short, that's probably why i also thought this was a brilliant piece.

In conclusion, it's a very good family entertainer but i would suggest you to watch it once before anyone watch it with their family with young kids.

Thank you for such a wonderful movie. i'd never regret if i watch it again. Please do give us more quality movies like this.
