Solid Underrated Movie About Divorce
This film was entertaining to watch. The performances especially by Jeff Daniels and Jesse Eisenberg were what brought life to this often depressing story. I just watched this film in 2018 for the first time but it is evident to see the career trajectory for both these actors being that this film came out in 2005. Eisenberg shows great maturity and intelligence at even a young age which obviously lead to many of his best roles including Social Network, Now You See Me, Batman Vs Superman. Daniels also showed through this film his ability to perform in serious roles and his strength as a lead. Shaking off Dumb and Dumber stereotypes is no easy feat. Daniels is now a well respected serious actor who is very, very talented as well. The meat of this story is divorce but the heart of it lies in self discovery, strength, love and realism. 7/10
