A maudlin, slice-of-life drama for which Laura Linney landed her third Oscar nomination. If only the film's prevailing tone were optimistic rather than funereal, there might be more of a reason to recommend this downer.

Hoffman, Linney and Bosco together generate such magnificent performances projecting a richly textured sense of the agony and ecstasy of a family in complicated meltdown, that it feels about as close to shared DNA as you can get.
