Everything Must Go

Everything is not yet lost.

While Will Ferrell is one of the kings of “go-big-and-get-loud” comedy, he also has some nice dramatic chops, which he shows off in this bittersweet tale of a man plateauing.

An alcoholic on the fast track to divorce and unemployment, he finds a new lease on life while camping in his front yard, half-heartedly selling all of his possessions in a haphazard garage sale.

Hanging out with him is a young neighbor boy and a woman with her own marital issues, and the three make for a terrific low-key trio.

Melancholy and sometimes magical.
