When an alcoholic relapses, causing him to lose his wife and his job, he holds a yard sale on his front lawn in an attempt to start over. A new neighbor might be the key to his return to form.
In Dan Rush’s shrewd adaptation of a Raymond Carver short story, the pursuit of happiness begins with hitting rock bottom. Proving that making people laugh is a serious business, funnyman Will Ferrell shows off his dramatic acting chops in this tragicomedy on the debilitating effects of alcoholism.
