Indeed, Wilbur (Sives) does want to die as the opening sequence shows him eager to swallow some pills in one of his many, varied attempts to join his deceased parents. When he becomes homeless his responsible, easy-going brother, Harbour (Rawlins), who lives above their father's old dingy bookstore, provides refuge even after Harbour's new wife and her nine-year-old daughter move in. With this unconventional family unit, Danish director Scherfig's first English offering exquisitely spans the spectrum of human emotion as it shuffles between humor as dark and dreary as its backdrop (Glasgow) and the morbidity inherent in such a tale.
