A Place For Me

Director: Josh Boone

Starring: Greg Kinnear, Lily Collins, Nat Wolff, Jennifer Connolly, Logan Lerman, Liana Liberato

Weepy that will have you laughing and crying either way take a box of tissues. Bill (Greg Kinnear) has recently divorced from Erica (Jennifer Connolly) and is trying to cope. Once a gifted novelist he encouraged his two teenage children, Sam (Lily Collins) and Rusty (Nat Wolff) to write and the film opens on the eve of Sam's first novel being published. The kids find their domestic situation difficult and see their father as a sad loser. Bill meantime mops for the departed Erica and consoles himself with a casual relationship. Then in a coming of age moment Cupid touches the lives of Sam and Rusty. Good performances in this wide screen soap opera.
