WIN WIN (Tom McCarthy, 2011)

Technically it's about family and parenthood and love and trust. Though of course it has nothing to say about any of those things.

The main pleasure of this very huggable indie dramedy is that it follows a set formula skilfully and efficiently: you spend an hour and a half or so with people who are impossible to dislike, and whose troubles come off as credible and reasonably urgent. McCarthy piles on the saccharine in the closing stretch but by then it's too late to resist.
