I really like this movie. It's about relationships with others and yourself and how they can fail but things can turn out ok. It's sincere and refreshingly not about characters you usually see in movies. There's a cute dog too. All the actors did great jobs. I bought this movie and watch it often. I love it.

Mike Mills, the director, is a great writer. And the movie explores his relationship with is father in an endearing way.

Lovely movie full of thoughtful, subtle performances from all. I did not expect to find it quite so sad. The synopsis leaves out just how much of the movie is about imperfect family relationships and grief.

Not sure where the title fits in, but this quirky movie about a graphic artist hitting 40 with a trail of failed relationships; his elderly father who has decided after 44 years of marriage to come out as gay; and a waif-like French actress is as engaging as they come. Very believable characterization.

Should be in the Drama category, mostly about grief (and the memories and restarting one's life, etc).

Felt like the focus of the story was on the son & not the dad so I thought the story was a bit boring & I didn't really feel much for the son.

I liked this movie. It was very touching. I also expected more of a comedy, but I wasn't disappointed by the story.

Forgive me for not enjoying this movie. Great actors all, but I didn't feel that their hearts were in the parts they played! It's all my fault, I know. SORRY!
