Jeff, Who Lives At Home - Review (2012)

The story of a pair of two adult brothers, one that lives in his mother's basement and the other one who's life is not going as well. Starts off feeling like a film about nothing. It turns out to say quite a lot about people that are not connecting. The bond is there between them, be it brotherhood, parent/child or marriage, but there is a short circuit. It happens, often sending us searching for a way to fill that void... often not in the way needed. A mildly funny film that ends up being more touching than you'd anticipate. With a abnormally puny 84 minute running time, it does not overstay its welcome. 7.5 out of 10
