Dan in Real Life (Pierce Gardner & Peter Hedges)
Dan Burns is a single father who dedicates life to his children, but one day he meets Marie at a bookstore. So far so good, until Dan finds out that Marie is actually dating his brother.

My thoughts on this film: I know it sounds like a mushy love story that you watch on weekend afternoons - and maybe it is - but this is also what I needed right now. Something on how complicated love is, which makes me realise that things do not only happen to me; everyone goes through the same, sooner or later it will all work out.
Not very funny, though!
