you can count on me

Sammy (Laura Linney) is a 30-something single mother who plays by the rules in her small. She’s a bit lonely, but generally happy with her life. A new boss and a visit from her slacker younger brother, Terry (Mark Rufalo)throw Sammy off balance just enough that she starts acting just outside of her “perfect mom/perfect employee” persona. This character-driven film is notable for the focus Terry and Sammy’s relationship without becoming cloying or preachy. Characters are painted realistically and there’s no pat Hollywood ending.
