A Very Serious Person is about unusual people in unusual circumstances, but that doesn't make it particularly interesting.

Audience Reviews for A Very Serious Person

Charles Busch wrote and directed this comedy drama about a male nurse who arrives to care for a terminally ill woman and forms a warm friendship with her sensitive 13 year old grandson. Poignant film can be overly precious at times, but ultimately benefits from the engaging and sincere performance of P.J. Verhoest, its young star.

This was a really great movie. Deifinitly worth watching. It's different from my usual though, being a drama. It has it's sad moments and it's akward ones. But it's really good. so yeah.
