A movie that does not hold back in the trial and tribulations of real life. Massachusetts is a state made up of small towns like Boston and Cape Ann. People who have never visited would be surprised how small these places really are. This might help one understand the life people living there. The fact that the main character is a janitor makes sense. That his nephews are hockey players and his sister-in-law an alcoholic fits right in with the mundane life that can sometimes be, especially in suburban America.
