James Gandolfini is Sorely Missed
Verified purchase
What a pleasant movie that just radiates realness. James Gandolfini could play a tough guy but he is even better in this kind of role where he has incredible depth of emotion. All the muses wept when he died. He is Just a nice guy trying to do the right thing in terrible circumstances I'm sure many people can relate. Edoarda Costa is amazing as well what a true talent. At a point in the movie Bailey says "I don't know if you're a good guy or a con artist" perfectly describing the views of the audience - and it leaves it up to interpretation. Perhaps his plan all along was to oust Bailey and take the house and take over the business, but in the end, it doesn't matter. Because that is the life they left behind; they've grown out of that situation and developed into something new. Joseph Pope's Wiley is slimy and gross, easy to hate and identify as the fly in the ointment or the peace of the puzzle that doesn't fit, and he knows he is a fraud. Increasingly he spends his time acting out in frustration toward Bailey because he knows who the better man is. Famke Janssen is great as well, I would have liked to see more of her grief over the death of Bailey's sister and how that affected her, but in an hour and a half the movie focuses on the turmoil between the three men using her character as a constant for the audience. In spite of that small criticism, this is a good, wholesome movie about regular people just trying to figure things out and be happy. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hard to watch

This was difficult to watch simply because the year this movie was released was the same year Gandolfini passed away then seeing his son in the movie as well just imagining that was the age when he found his father deceased. So tragic for his young little mind , so tragic for his wife and baby girl and the whole family. Gandolfini appeared to be a very loving man if you go by his will and how he divided things up with so much thought and love for each person he had in his will. From that will I think it's safe to say ,"A good man gone too soon".
The movie was somewhat slow moving and at times boring and kind of a let down because you keep thinking something big is about to drop but it never does only a confession. Although I understood the ending it didn't really make sense to me. And it never really clarified the BILs true intentions. Does he want to be friends and part of the family or does he want to con his way into taking everyones money? It's never made clear. In my mind I want to make up my own ending and say he becomes a trusted and loving, honest family member because he shows kindness and so much care and patience towards the mentally challenged son and the boys mother.

Poignant, wonderful performances by all --- the extra star is for James Gandolfini - I miss him.
The story unfolds beautifully, is carefully crafted, and the movie has an extremely talented cast, every one of them; small budget indie film hits a home run. Emotionally difficult in a few spots, balanced by uplifting scenes. Stick with it; intelligently chosen soundtrack, editing, and masterful casting and direction. A little gem.
If you're looking for Hollywood, this film is its antithesis, so move on to something more banal and narcissistic.

A little slow and dreary, like the winters on the Jersey Shore. Stick with it, it was alright.

The story is sad and Keansburg, NJ is a depressing place, but the movie has merit......Eduardo Costa character is amazingly intuitive...... It's just sad. Good musical score
