Winner of the Best Picture and Best Screenplay awards at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival, "You Can Count on Me" has been hailed as "the best American movie this year." Laura Linney, in her Oscar nominated role, and Mark Ruffalo star as grown-up siblings who couldn't be more different. While conservative Sammy (Linney) stayed in her quiet hometown, rebellious Terry (Ruffalo) was on the road, drifting in and out of trouble. When Terry suddenly comes to visit, his presence has a profound influence on Sammy's world. As Terry forms a special friendship with Sammy's precocious eight-year-old son, Rudy (Rory Culkin), Sammy rediscovers her passion for life, entertaining a marriage proposal from her boyfriend (Jon Tenney) while having a fling with her boss (Matthew Broderick). But when Terry's behavior become disruptive, Sammy must finally confront the choices of the past...and make new ones to renew her family's future.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: You Can Count On Me may look like it belongs on the small screen, but the movie surprises with its simple yet affecting story. Beautifully acted and crafted, the movie will simply draw you in.
Sweet family drama has profanity and mature themes.
