You Can Count on Me

HD

Adult siblings Sammy Prescott and Terry Prescott have had a special bond with each other since they were kids when their parents were tragically killed in a car accident. That bond is why single mom Sammy, who still lives in the family home in Scottsville, upstate New York with her eight year old son Rudy, is excited to hear that Terry, who she has not seen or heard from in a while, is coming home for a visit. That excitement is dampened slightly upon Terry's arrival, when she learns that he, broke, is only there to borrow money. As adults, Sammy, who works as a lending officer in the local bank, is seen as the responsible sibling, while unfocused Terry is seen as the irresponsible drifter. Regardless, Sammy welcomes what ends up being Terry's longer than planned visit if only so that he can help take care of Rudy, who has no adult male figure in his life. Rudy has never known his deadbeat biological father, with whom Sammy wants nothing to do. As Terry - acting as the supposed adult male role model figure - gets to know Rudy, and as Sammy deals with the issues in her life which includes figuring out what her relationship to longtime friend / lover Bob Steegerson means, and how to deal with her straight-laced micro-managing new boss Brian Everett, the maturity level between Sammy and Terry is not as far apart as it appears on the surface....

You Can Count on Me Solarmovie review

When I saw You Can Count on Me, I was impressed - to be honest, I really liked the movie. You Can Count on Me is a great movie. Kenneth Lonergan is perhaps one of the most poetic directors who knows how to present life as it is. This is not just a film with beautiful shots and an attempt to discourage filmed in the Drama genre, but the usual truth of life, which here and now, on the next street, can happen to you. The film will not let you get bored because there are enough sharp plot twists, which makes it one of the best 2000 films of the year. First of all, I will say the simplest and most important thing - I liked the movie very much, and it is a great merit of the director and the fact that the film was shot in United States....
