You Can Count On Me (2000)

Film details


Drama. A brother and sister remain very close when their parents are killed in a car crash. Years later, the sister, Sammy, is surprised when her brother Terry, a drifter, suddenly shows up. Sammy is a divorced mother of a little boy, and a regular churchgoer who is overprotective of her child. Her brother, by contrast, is an irresponsible young man, who has come back in order to borrow money. Terry becomes friendly with Sammy's little boy, and in return his behaviour has an effect on his straitlaced sister, who begins an affair with her bank manager, a married man.
