Customer Reviews

Cinematography was very good and performances were great.
Dennis A. Amith (kndy)
Liev Schreiner is married to Helen Hunt, and as a husband(Ned) he has waaay too many problems and issues to deal with, sometimes kind of like in real life.
Nev Okyay
So, watch it if you like, but just don't tell me, because knowing that will just depress me.

I happened to catch this on a movie by demand channel and selected it because I'm a fan of Helen Hunt. I hadn't seen her in much lately. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth and realistic portrayal of the stresses and strains of juggling the role of caregiver with balancing the rest of family life - keeping a marriage together and dealing with the kids.

My only criticism of this movie is that Hunt, in her role as Jeannie, comes across as so desperately unhappy, bitter, and angry that she borders on being shrewish at times. On the other hand, she is in a very difficult situation, with a very unhappy, demanding, and critical father as well as the usual challenges of a home, marriage, children, etc.

Even though her unhappiness is understandable, it is sometimes hard to feel sympathy for her. She has difficulty maintaining any perspective. She is frequently so upset that I found it easy to understand why her husband felt lost on the sidelines at times (although he does his best to help ) and also why her children were frequently confused and scared. Her husband also (again, understandably) finds it hard to resist the appeal of an attractive co-worker who makes it clear she is open to evenings full of sex as well as work projects.

In spite of any issues with this movie, any viewers (raising hand) may well relate to Jeannie's challenge of trying to care for an aging parent. The primary duties fall to her and she is clearly over her head. She already had a difficult relationship with her father before he became ill and having him move in with her and the rest of her family doesn't make things easier. Brian Dennehy is superb as the father who struggles with both alcoholism and suicidal impulses.

Writer/director Richard Levine's "Every Day" is an unassuming little picture (albeit one with a pretty impressive cast) that deserves to be appreciated by a wider audience. A story of obligation and compromise, this is a candidly realistic look at a family in turmoil. At times deftly direct, at others absurdly comical--this is a movie that might have dematerialized into a conventionally quirky sitcom. But it is, ultimately, grounded by true drama and strong performances. As a result, this is one of the more satisfying sleepers that has completely exceeded my expectations. Liev Schreiber, Helen Hunt, Brian Dennehy, Ezra Miller, and Skyler Fortgang play the family in question with the always undervalued Carla Gugino and scene stealing Eddie Izzard as workplace colleagues of Schreiber. Every time the film appears to be about to veer into contrivance, the smart screenplay reels things back. It is a perfect balance that Schreiber is largely responsible for--as he is the actor primarily straddling plot lines with distinctly different tones.

Schreiber and Hunt have invited her ailing and estranged father (Dennehy) to live with him during his declining health. Hunt, who sometimes falls a bit flat for me, is absolutely spot-on here. Bitter, angry, resentful--this is a letter perfect performance (and the film's best) from start to finish. You may not always like her, but her distant and antagonistic relationship with her father rings quite true as does her decision to try to make him comfortable despite her misgivings. Dennehy tries to maintain dignity as his body betrays him, but does little to ingratiate himself with the clan. Miller, their eldest son, is exploring his burgeoning homosexuality and this is a strain for Schreiber who hasn't quite come to terms with things.

Writer and producer Richard Levine is known for his work as executive producer, writer and director for TV series "Nip/Tuck" and his work on "Stark Raving Mad" and "Jag". His primary work has been with television but with situations happening in his personal life, Levine was able to get personal and write a loosely-based story of those elements that took place when his wife's estranged elderly father came to live with them and how it affected the family.

Working together with independent film producer Miranda Bailey ("The Squid and the Whale", "The Oh in Ohio", "Dead & Breakfast"), Levine wrote and directed "Every Day", a low budget film which would feature an all-star cast with Liev Shreiber ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine", "Salt", "Defiance"), Carla Gugino ("Watchmen", "Sin City", "Night at the Museum"), Helen Hunt ("Mad About You", "As Good as it Gets", "Twister", "What Women Want"), Brian Dennehy ("Ratatouille", "First Blood", "Romeo+Juliet"), Eddie Izzard ("Valkyrie", "Ocean's Thirteen", "The Riches"), Ezra Miler ("City Island", "After School") and Skyler Fortgang ("Damages", "American Gangster").

"Every Day" is a 2010 film which focuses on a family in New York.

Ned (played by Liev Schreiber) is a writer for a TV series in which his demanding boss Garrett (played by Eddie Izzard) wants more sensationalism in his scripts and since they are not good enough, they are constantly rejected. Ned is married to Jeannie (played by Helen Hunt), a former working professional who is now stressed out that her estranged father Ernie (played by Brian Dennehy) is no longer able to take care of himself and now he must move in with them.
