Diminished Capacity

In 2008 this movie was released and I'd never heard of it. You can instant view it on netflix, which is how I saw it. Mattew Broderick heads a cast that also includes Alan Alda.

The main character played by Broderick has had a traumatic brain injury and is slowly healing. He's having trouble at work and then his mom calls to see if he can help with his uncle who also has diminished capacity for aging reasons.

From there we are set on an arch of discovery and adventure. Virginia Madsen plays the love interest in the story.

This is Jeanne's kind of movie! When we owed the video stores, the movies she got excited about were usually not as popular, but they always had great plots and interesting characters. But when we watched it together, she wasn't as taken with it as me so I may be wrong..this can only be a 3 out of 5 star movie.
