Penelope and I figure some viewers will tune in to watch Affleck, you don't see Clooney. We didn't. We're gay remember!
But the story line is impelling by Amazon. A boy and his mother move home after being evicted. The Home is that to a many people, Affleck being just one.
"In 1972, 9-year-old J.R. Maguire moves into his grandfather's dilapidated house in Long Island, N.Y. Searching for a father figure, he falls under the unconventional tutelage of his uncle Charlie, a charismatic, self-educated bartender who introduces him to a handful of the bar's colorful regulars. As the years pass and J.R. grows into a young man, he tries to fulfill his dream of becoming a writer."
Christopher Lloyd portrays the acerbic but lovable grandfather superbly often providing the only attention and love JR seeks.
