You Can Count on Me 2000 / Now On Amazon Prime

9.4
S
Staff

Written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea) and featuring the ever-reliable Mark Ruffalo as well as a fantastic performance from Laura Linney, You Can Count on Me is a beautiful and beautifully told story of siblings growing apart and later finding each other again. Sammy (Linney) helped raise her younger brother Terry (Ruffalo) after they were orphaned at an early age. Now a single mother, her life turns around when Terry comes back after a long time of being absent, with the two having become almost completely different people in between. Such an honest, genuine exploration of unconditional love, think of it as much more hopeful The Skeleton Twins.

I wasn’t expecting much going into this, and while the story might seem “small”, there is much more to this movie than meets the eye. Fantastic acting, especially from Mark Ruffalo. I loved it.
