Storyline

Years ago, Scott left common lover Katherine at the altar to become a hedonistic junkie. She married his brother William, a successful Louisiana workaholic, who sired a daughter but probably not bright nerd son Charles and is serially adulterous on his many business trips. Now Scott returns on horseback, having lost his drivers permit, inviting himself and proving a popular, yet unreliable uncle for Charles. Making up with father is impossible due to Alzheimer. As Scott keeps surprising his family, his sad secret emerges. Written by KGF Vissers

Great movie
19 August 2013 | by dumasbjSee all my reviews

Although it is classified as a "comedy" there is absolutely nothing funny in this movie. That being said, I enjoyed every minute of it. Ryan Phillipe is really good in this movie and so is the kid. The rest of the characters are somewhat irrelevant in my opinion. Without giving too much away, the ending where they're just sitting the two are sitting enjoying eachtohers company reminds me of my wife and I and really was a great moment. I recommend this movie to everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I watched this film on netflix and to be honest I am kind of used to watching crappy movies on there but today was definitely a pleasant surprise.
