DAN IN REAL LIFE
As directed by Peter Hedges , this is a sophisticated romantic comedy with big stars that is successfully aimed at actual adults. Starring contemporary comedy giant Steve Carell and Oscar-winning French high-culture heroine Juliette Binoche, a coupling as unlikely as it is delicious, “Dan” offers the most pleasing kind of unforced charm as it uses a terrific plot device to examine the conflicts between family and romance as well as the joy and pain of being in love. (1:39) PG-13 for some innuendo.
