Overview

A man sets out to find the son he didn't know he had and winds up getting answers to some questions he never asked in this comedy-drama from director Jim Jarmusch. Don Johnston (Bill Murray) is an emotionally blank middle-aged man who has never married and lives a quiet, comfortable life thanks to shrewd investments in computers (though he doesn't use one himself). After being given his walking papers by his latest girlfriend, Sherry (Julie Delpy), Don receives an anonymous letter informing him he fathered a son 19 years ago, and that the boy wants to find his dad. Not sure what to do, Don shows the note to Winston (Jeffrey Wright), a neighbor who fancies himself an amateur detective. With Winston's help, Don narrows the list of possible mothers down to four women, and with a mixture of reluctance and resigned determination he sets out to find them. Armed with a CD of traveling music from Winston, Don pays unannounced visits to Laura (Sharon Stone), an oversexed widow with a libidinous teenage daughter (Alexis Dziena); Dora (Frances Conroy), a stuffy real estate agent; Penny (Tilda Swinton), an aging biker with no happy memories of Don; and Carmen (Jessica Lange), a self-styled analyst for pets whose outward eccentricity disguises a firm inner stability.

I love Bill Murray, and I love films that are realistic and beautifully put together, but I think my expectations were a bit too high. I wasn't disappointed, per say, it just wasn't what I thought it'd be. Let's just say that you get to see a lot of the inside of a Ford Taurus. Don't expect a happy ending from this film, or any happiness at all, for that matter. But life is sometimes dark and lonely, and it leaves us wanting more...just like this film. Don't be discouraged by the non-happy theme. Give it a shot--it just might appeal to some part of you.

THis movie is a sedate one for Bill Murray, much slower than even Lost In Translation. But this is still a good movie to pass an evening. He meets someone very different women along the way.

Murray has mastered staring ahead during long stretches of silence while occasionally raising an eyebrow. It's cute, like a Pikanese nonchalantly pooping on your lawn. I loved it in "Lost in Translation." Now, it feels gimicky. I'm sorry, Mr. Murray, that you didn't get the Oscar you deserved from "Lost," but please cut the strings and make a new movie.
