New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

Closes June 12
Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne and Robert De Niro in a sensitive drama about the challenges of autism

Ezra follows Max Bernal (Bobby Cannavale), a stand-up comedian living with his father (Robert De Niro), while struggling to co-parent his autistic son Ezra (introducing William Fitzgerald) with his ex-wife (Rose Byrne). When forced to confront difficult decisions about their son’s future, Max and Ezra embark on a cross-country road trip that has a transcendent impact on both their lives. Directed by Tony Goldwyn, who also appears in the film alongside additional cast members Vera Farmiga, Rainn Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg, Ezra is an endearing and often funny exploration of a family determined to find their way through life’s complexities with humor, compassion, and heart.

Earns its crowd-hugging stripes legitimately thanks to its superb ensemble and sensitive direction that never gets in the way of its knowing script.

Hollywood Reporter

Warm, wise and wonderful. It’s a captivating, funny and heartfelt journey well worth taking. Bobby Cannavale gives one the best performances of his career. William Fitzgerald is a revelation.
