Vern says...

'You know, one of two things happens when you meet your heroes. Either they're assholes. Or they're just like you are. Either way, you always lose.'

- Vern (played by Jay Paulson, Imaginary Heroes, written by Dan Harris, 2004)

Note: As far as family-drama films are concerned, Imaginary Heroes isn't widely recognized, but it's one of my favourites. With an outstanding cast that includes Emile Hirsch, Jeff Daniels, Sigourney Weaver, and Michelle Williams, and a unique and heart-breaking plotline, this film is highly recommended to anyone that like a story about a family being pushed to its limits by tragedy and inner turmoil. This was the film that showed me how well Jeff Daniels can really act when given the right material. Not a happy movie by any means, but one of the most engaging and well-written dramas that I know about.
