ST VINCENT

A young boy whose parents have just divorced finds an unlikely friend and mentor in the misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic war veteran who lives next door. -- IMDB

What a delightful surprise this little movie is. Bill Murray (Vincent) is all Bill Murray - but he plays Bill Murray well and is a joy to watch. Melissa McCarthy's (Maggie) usual over-the-top performance is toned down to a beautifully understated role and shows she has great potential as an actor. Naomi Watts (Daka) clearly has fun with her “lady of the night” role. And newcomer, Jaeden Lieberher, is winsome as Oliver. The story is simple and full of positive values. It’s funny, heart-warming, with genuine humour. I really enjoyed it.
