A hit at the Sundance Film Festival, Lonesome Jim, the new comedy by Steve Buscemi, is a dead-pan hilarious coming-of-age story. Suffering from self proclaimed "chronic despair," Jim (Casey Affleck) returns from NYC to his Indiana hometown and everything he was so anxious to leave behind. As he connects with his family and takes a hilarious gig as a winless pre-teen girls basketball coach, he encounters a beautiful nurse Anika (Liv Tyler) who is everything he isn't - optimistic. The relationship opens the door to a future in which Jim might be able to move forward without leaving everything from his past behind. As you'd expect from Buscemi, the film is filled with marvelous, understated performances and hilarious unexpected insights.
