This arty quirky dramedy is not completely bad, but it is around 85% bad. You have a solid cast in Annette Bening, Brian Cox, Alec Baldwin and Gwyneth Paltrow, and an amazing performance from Joseph Fiennes, who was so good I couldn't believe it was him until halfway through the film, his accent was flawless. But none of these guys stopped this from being a heinous waste of two hours.
The film tries to be TOO quirky. ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW, JUNEBUG, THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, they all balanced the quirky with the drama quite nicely. Even something like THE STATION AGENT. This film tries to be like all of those, with the baggage of mental health themes, but just irritates from being too self-conscious and rarely grounded.
