"Welcome to the Rileys"

This is one powerful film. It's dark and slow paced. But what a story and what great acting. A couple, who've been married for almost 30 years, have drawn apart after the death of their 15-year old daughter. The husband goes to New Orleans for a convention and ends up befriending a young stripper. He's not sure what he's doing, but he moves in with her. The performances by James Gandolfini, Kristen Stewart, and Melissa Leo are all subtle yet excellent. Warning, this is an adult film with lots of swearing. But it's a film that you'll think about for a long time.
3 1/2 stars out of 5.
