Depressed young man (Casey Affleck) goes back to his Indiana home to live with his overly doting mother (Mary Kay Place), distant father (Seymour Cassel) and confused brother (Kevin Corrigan), falls for a single mother (Liv Tyler) with a small son (Jack Rovello), and ultimately comes to a better understanding of himself and those around him. Director Steve Buscemi's film is sometimes slow and meandering, and its true-to-life candor won't appeal to all tastes, but the central protagonist develops as a person, and the overall message of accepting life for what it is, not what you want it to be, is a good one. Scattered instances of profanity, rough and crude language and expressions, some crass humor, rear and partial nudity, premarital relationship, sexual banter and lewd images, prostitute character, suicide theme and drug references. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
