Movie Info

A successful and self-absorbed novelist makes a belated attempt to mend his fractured friendship with the lifelong buddy who unceremoniously sent him packing years ago in this drama from director/screenwriter Lynn Shelton. Eric Lambert Jones was a terrible friend, so bad that his childhood friend Dylan wanted him out of his life altogether. One day, while traveling across country on his latest book tour, Eric drops by Dylan's picturesque Washington state home in hopes that their friendship can still be salvaged.

Audience Reviews for My Effortless Brilliance

(***): [img][/img] For some reason, this movie worked for me. I think I just enjoyed the overall simplicity of it and that it was a departure from usual Hollywood fair.


My Effortless Brilliance was an interesting movie but something about it was very very wrong.Understand what I'm saying?

A pretty good movie (I got it just because it had the same director as 'humpday'). Most of the film is in the woods and looks great. The conflict at the beginning of the movie is not directly resolved and the plot is thin, but i think that is probably a good description of most male friend relationships.
