      You Can Count on Me Reviews

      ...what I especially loved was that this film lets its two main characters do genuinely awful, hurtful things, which don't even disrupt the siblings' mirrored self-righteousness...

      The kind of film that often gets lost in the Hollywood shuffle, You Can Count On Me is marked by great writing... and utterly believable relationships between characters.

      Unusually sharp editing is the first hint that in fact it's a superior, acutely observed comedy-drama about family ties and the struggle to find a sense of purpose, even managing to work in some genuinely metaphysical intimations.

      Sweet family drama has profanity and mature themes.

      This feature debute, which gives good name to American indie cinema, is worth revisiting on DVD for the performances of Mark Ruffalo and Laura Linney.

      A score of Bach's unaccompanied cello suites befits siblings accustomed to solitude - passages of mourning and joy given life by characters with proper proportions of antagonism and affection. Unresolved yet complete, it's about replacing fear with truth.

      The lead characters are extremely well played by Laura Linney and Mark Ruffalo. Yet above all it is Kenneth Lonergan's writing and direction that left the biggest mark.

      Stylized showmen do Rain Man and Forrest Gump, but it takes a natural actor like Ruffalo to pull off this strange beauty.

      Linney and Ruffalo's rapport is warm but raw and unsentimental, capturing the unconditional tough love dynamic that can only exist between siblings.

      Few films have explored the complicated bonds of love and resentment between brother and sister with such delightful honesty.

      Lonergan avoids the faults of many American storytellers by refusing to cast characters in a judgmental light, giving each enough dignity to be convincing and sympathetic.

      It is a rarity to find a film willing to tell a story through an exploration of the relationship, the romance, between a brother and a sister.
