Overview
From the celebrated director of Sideways (Alexander Payne) comes a wonderfully warm and witty film that Rolling Stone calls "damn near perfect." Academy Award® Winner George Clooney* "leads the ensemble cast of the year" (Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune).

Experience a bittersweet drama about a detached father's attempt to reconnect with his two daughters and their often-hilarious quest for the truth in this "moving, enlightening, funny and unapologetically human" film (Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine).

*Supporting Actor, Syriana, 2005
