Movie review of Dan in Real Life
Last night I watched the movie Dan in Real Life. I liked it a lot: its well-written, well-acted, and had some sweet sections. Steve Carell plays “sad” well.
Steve Carell plays a widower with three daughters. He's a good guy, and a pretty good – but imperfect – dad. On the way to the annual family get-together – with his parents, his siblings and spouses, and their kids (and his kids) – he meets the woman of his dreams. Then it turns out that she's his younger brother's new girlfriend.
It spoke to me: I was in a similar situation, a hundred years ago.
Two quotes from the movie:
“If you want to be completely honest – sing.”
“Love isn't an emotion: it's an ability.”
