Jeff, Who Lives at Home
Jeff is a 30-something single man living in his mother’s basement with seemingly no direction in life. His obsession with the film Signs means he’s infatuated with destiny and fate and always in search of the meaning behind various actions. This film follows Jeff as his mother sends him out to the local hardware store for a message. Along the way his journey turns and he joins up with his older brother to stalk his potentially adulterous wife. Throughout all of this Jeff knows there’s something more important he should be doing and various signals along the way encourage him to keep searching for his real meaning and purpose.
This is a very well made film and one that really holds and engages interest with good acting throughout from Jeff (Jason Segel) and Jeff’s mother (Susan Sarandon). The dialogue is well scripted and delivered expertly by all the cast with a number of funny and poignant moments littered throughout. So not the belly laughing comedy you’d come to expect from this cast but a nice journey through life to make anyone take a step back and ask themselves if they’re following the signs of fate put before them.
