In You Can Count on Me — the directorial debut of playwright Kenneth Lonergan — Linney and Ruffalo (each a charismatic ace) play brother and sister, a pair of disconnected small towners who, as Linney puts it sidewise to a priest, ”just can’t quite get ahold of themselves.” He’s a dope smoking drifter; she’s out of control in a neurotic middle class way — a single mom unsettled by the prospect of settling down and instead entangled with her bank manager boss (Matthew Broderick, at his most compellingly twerpy). The story of their relationship is an intimate, intricate marvel about ties and disconnections.
