Lonesome Jim [UPD]
BOB MONDELLO: There's something intriguing about seeing a movie with a Steve Buscemi character in it who is not played by Steve Buscemi. Jim, who is indeed lonesome at the beginning of Lonesome Jim, is a 27-year-old writer wannabe, who basically hasn't been, and is starting to think he'll never be. He's played by Casey Affleck and as the movie starts, he's returned to the bosom of a family he doesn't really get along with after failing to make his mark in Manhattan. It's easy to see how his oppressively cheerful mother might get on his nerves, when shortly after his arrival she walks in on him in the bathtub and settles in for a chat.
