After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.
This is a quite nice film. I don't know if I think it deserves all the "Academy Award" attention it got but it's good. I like it so don't get me wrong but this film didn't leave me with a great impression.
Tiffany and Pat are both imperfect, which you get immediately, but immediately likable. This is not a normal fairy tail, it shows you that nothing is perfect in a romance in a very different way than other rom-com's do.
