Diminished Capacity

A delightfully bittersweet comedy with Matthew Broderick as a newspaper editor who finds himself rotated from the political section to the comic strip after a concussion leaves him with memory loss. He heads home to Missouri where he finds his senile uncle (Alan Alda) on the verge of losing his home, but the discovery of a valuable baseball card could turn everything around - if they can stay lucid long enough not to get ripped off. This smart indie comedy is based on the novel by Sherwood Kiraly, who also adapted it for the screen. Virginia Madsen and Bobby Cannavale also star.
