The Trouble with Bliss
Morris Bliss, who lives at home, gets involved with the barely legal daughter of an ex-classmate in yet another coming-of-age comedy about a slouch in his 30s. This one works, thanks to a charming and highly observant script by novelist Douglas Light and director Michael Knowles. Michael C. Hall leads an exceptional cast that includes Peter Fonda and Brad William Henke as the beleaguered father figures, as well as Brie Larson, who ignites each frame like a comedic comet. 2012.
