Some powerful moments. A bit hard to understand Bobby Coleman. Amanda Peet more subdued than expected. Takes the "different one" idea to another planet, like K-PAX did.

Either way, it's an interesting piece and it has a handful of insights about alienation and living. I'm glad that this shows the hardship of parenting, specifically adoption, but I'm sure that it's at least ten times harder in real life. John Cusack is very believable as a windower who desperately needs to heal. But it is Joan Cusack who stole the scenes because of her interesting mannerisms a...
