Gilbert: We don't really move. I mean, we'd like to, but... my mom is sort of attached to the house. Attached is, I guess, not the right word. She's pretty much wedged in.
This film was...fabulously different.
Johnny Depp is fabulous as the saddled sibling who has to watch out for his uncastrated family. Gilbert's life is defined by others.
Leonardo DiCaprio is fabulous as the impaired brother.
Based on the novel by Peter Hedges, who wrote the screenplay, it is thoroughly original.
