The movie creeps up on you, and it's not until its firecracker ending that you realize just how much it made you care about these people.

The funny, touching and vital Jeff, Who Lives at Home reaffirms your faith in Jay and Mark Duplass. Their films hit you where you live.

The lives of these sweet, confused, basically decent people wrap around one another in ways that are funny, far-fetched and touching.
