Dan In Real Life (2007)


Dan is a recent widower trying to raise 3 daughters, 1 of which hates him, the other finds him to be average and the youngest is attached to him. After running into a woman at a bookstore he begins to develop an interested in her… it’s only after he returns that he finds out that she is the girlfriend of his brother. Now, during a 5-day family reunion he has to try to deal with his forbidden love. This was a great film particularly because of the performances by Carell and Binoche. After finding out the catch, the whole rest of the movie seems entertainingly awkward. It’s a great comedy drama that seems to play off an old but uncommon Hollywood story.
