In the Land of Women
One critic describes this movie as a "softer, fuzzier, Garden State." and that seems about right. Adam Brody (OC funny man) leaves his Hollywood life behind to take care of his kookie grandmother played by Olympia Dukakis. He encounters and counsels a mother-daughter team (Meg Ryan and Kristen Stewart, Speak) who are messed up in a few different ways. I don't think this movie deserved the crummy reviews it got even though the movie does not hang together very well despite some good acting.
