Junebug

Genre: Drama; Starring: Embeth Davidtz, Benjamin McKenzie, Alessandro Nivola; Director: Phil Morrison; Author: Angus MacLachlan; Runtime (in minutes): 107; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics

There have been so many strenuously cute indie comedies about ”quirky” dysfunctional families that you may find yourself caught entrancingly off guard by Phil Morrison’s tale of lost innocence, deep roots, and what it means to come from the world of the South. Amy Adams’ performance as a gloriously arrested chatterbox is the film’s heart and also its flaky, wonderstruck soul.
