Reunited with his long-lost stepdaughter by an ex-wife's hysterical plea for help, gay lawyer Henry Archer allows the young woman to move into his basement, where she reluctantly poses as the girlfriend of a down-on-his-luck former sitcom star.
May 26, 2009 Elinor Lipman writes dialogue that sizzles with playful, effortless wit — but even at its breeziest The Family Man finds time to fully imagine its characters and linger over the unspoken cues that pass between them.
