Only one so far, and it's pretty good.
Zumann’s earnest, heartfelt performance. He perfectly balances James' anxiety with his underlying sweetness as well as his awkward idiosyncrasy. While Zumann is the film’s anchor, his co-stars give him plenty to play off, including the appealing charm of Russell’s Sophie, the cantankerousness of Isaac’s Brute and the cloud of sadness enveloping Lisa Edelstein’s Elly, James’ seemingly passive mother.

while it seriously addresses issues of mental health, it maintains a delicate humanity that makes it easy to sympathize with its characters, leading to an absorbing film that’s both entertaining and affecting.
