An exemplary combination of fantastic writing, directing and acting for the virgin directing effort of Kenneth Lonergan. YOU CAN COUNT ON ME centers on an area not usually focused on, an adult brother-sister relationship. You get to see Sammy as a single mother, as a friend, as a girlfriend, a mistress and an employee. When her younger, unfocused brother Terry wanders back in her life, their relationship is the one that draws your attention. The chemistry of the writing permits you to see the manner that remains constant in any sibling relationship: an immaturity and familiarity that exists with no one else but someone you grew up with. (Oscar Mahoney)
