What is going on with movies?

This movie attempts to pursue the same tradition as "Me and You and Everyone We Know" or even "The Squid and The Whale" although it pales in comparision with both when it comes to its exploration of real emotions. Nevertheless, it is a well-meant attempt.
in America are finally paying some attention to stories of real family
emotions and family problems in America. I use the word family because
all these movies are centered around children and their adult
practice of involving the emotional relationships with children goes back to the Italian tradition but it has been utilized
and enhanced in modern movies from Iran, too. For example, see "Color of Paradise" or other Majid Majidi movies.
