Eccentric with a humorless intensity, this curlicued story of an oddball family features Toni Collette doing her familiar overexpressive thing as an unconventional feminist single mom; old-soul kid actor Jason Spevack as her genius son, Henry, who's a miracle of artificial insemination; and Michael Sheen as an emotionally impacted academic with a bad memory. As with his previous film Fireflies in the Garden, writer-director Dennis Lee scratches the skin of family bonds until it bleeds. This time, he uses whimsy as a salve. (Also available on VOD) C-
