Lonesome Jim

Cult actor Steve Buscemi turns director once again (following Tree's Lounge and Animal Factory) to relate another quirky indie drama/comedy about a 27-year-old (Casey Affleck) who moves back in with his parents only to contend with some crippling family obligations. The film isn't that far off from predecessors like Jersey Girl, Garden State and Elizabethtown. Unfortunately, the script strands Affleck with a mighty miserable mope of a protagonist. Side characters end up stealing the show (and most of the laughs). 91 minutes R.
