Movie Alert

In case you've never seen it, A Cool, Dry Place (Netflix | IMDb) is one of the most fantastic movies ever made. It's been one of my favorites since it came out, I adore this movie. It stars Vince Vaughn, Joey Lauren Adams, and Monica Potter. It's kind of Kramer vs. Kramer Light, if you get my drift.

Vince Vaughn (Russ) is a single Dad taking care of his beautiful 4 year old son Calvin in rural Kansas after his estranged wife Kate (Potter) abandons them. In the middle is Russ' new love interest, Beth (Adams) when Kate turns up out of nowhere one day, and subsequently leaves taking their son with her. Very emotional and straightforward movie without the usual cloyingly sweet and overused dramatics.
