#1 of 4 Small, Beautiful Films: “You Can Count On Me”

You Can Count On Me is an American drama film starring Laura Linney, Mark Ruffalo, Rory Culkin, and Matthew Broderick.

 Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival“Beyond and beneath, that is the rich human story of You Can Count on Me. I love the way Lonergan shows his characters in flow, pressed this way and that by emotional tides and practical considerations. This is not a movie about people solving things. This is a movie about people living day to day with their plans, fears and desires. It’s rare to get a good movie about the touchy adult relationship of a sister and brother. Rarer still for the director to be more fascinated by the process than the outcome. This is one of the best movies of the year

Though not widely known to the general public (no super heroes, no bullets flying, no disasters to unfold), You Can Count On Me was one of the most highly regarded films of 2000 amongst critics and film festival goers.  Roger Ebert wrote of it:
