Aro Favourite Cyrus


USA 2010, 91 minutes
Dir. Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy / Independent, Romance


Aroview: This placid yet sophisticated comedy of male rivalry sees a middle-aged divorcee (Reilly) stumble upon the woman of his dreams (Tomei), only to have to fight for her love with her possessive adult son (Hill).

Choosing to neither exaggerate the incestuous overtones present in the mother and son’s unbearably close relationship, nor the battle-of-wits between the two men for broad laughs, directors Jay and Mark Duplass maintain an easy-going approach to the material that, while loyal to their previous indie outings, makes a successful Hollywood breakout project for the pair. The film’s reserved quality is a breath of fresh comedic air, as are the warm and inviting performances of the collective cast, with Reilly, in particular, never better.
