Just watched this, courtesy of Netflix, and it's a must-see. Beautiful, odd, poignant, and humorously heartwarming all at the same time.
When I first saw that Alan Cummings had a supporting role in it, I was a bit put off. He was a really, really, REALLY bad guy in one of my favorite movies, "Rob Roy," and since seeing him in that, it's been hard for me to see him as any other character. But he does a phenomenal job in this movie as a quirky, good-hearted man, so I was able to get past his previous roles.
I'm no Ebert or Roper, but really ... this is a must-see.
