    Feeling lonely and isolated, Wilson (Woody Harrelson) tracks down Pippa (Laura Dern), the ex-wife who left him 17 years earlier. She tells the neurotic and middle-aged misanthrope that he is the father of a teenager named Claire (Isabella Amara). Shocked, excited and hopeful, Wilson embarks on a madcap quest to connect with the daughter he never knew he had.

    American Splendor

    Acclaimed comedy drama, based on the comics by Harvey Pekar and charting his mundane but surprisingly complex life. Paul Giamatti stars as Pekar, who becomes inspired to put pen to paper after an encounter with famed artist Robert Crumb. He soon acquires a cult following, which leads him to a relationship with fan Joyce Brabner (Hope Davis). The film successfully captures the comics' sardonic humour and cleverly mixes fact and recreation, in the style of a docu-drama, with the real Pekar and Brabner chipping in to comment on the presentation of their lives.
