Rating:
R
You Can Count on Me is the 2000 critically acclaimed independent drama from formidable new talent writer-director Kenneth Lonergan. Set in a bucolic small town in rural New England, Sammy Prescott is a single mother trying to instill in her eight-year old son a sense of decency and values. Having lost their parents in a car crash at a very early age, Sammy and her siblings have obviously had to overcome many psychological and emotional obstacles on their way to adulthood ' and no one seems to have been as adversely affected by the tragedy as Sammy's younger brother, Terry, who, as an adult, has found himself drifting aimlessly from one location, job and relationship to another, completely lacking the anchor that holds most of our lives in place. Sammy has found that anchor in the form of her son, her home, her church and her bank job, but when Terry suddenly returns for a visit and the bank hires a new, less-than-understanding manager (with whom she ends up having an affair), even Sammy discovers that the threads holding her own life together may be more tenuous and tangled than she originally imagined.moreless
