User Reviews: I saw this at Sundance earlier in the year. I didn’t know anything about it going into the festival and it blew me away. Sharon Stone was terrific. I’m not a huge fan of hers, but the scenes of her and her son when he was a boy were terrific. Tom Arnold was also great as her car sales/womanizing husband. Jimmy Fallon was oddly serious throughout the film. I was hoping he’d crack a jock every once in a while, but he was supposed to play is straight and he was good. Lucy Liu was also good as his girlfriend. The movie was a thoughtful/funny meditation on the father/son/family dynamic…of loss, love and regrets. Surprisingly good film.
