Will Ferrell plays against type as a depressed, alcoholic salesman in this sharp, affecting drama. Fired for misconduct and dumped by his wife, he camps out on his lawn and decides to sell his possessions in a yard sale. Though the actor is famous for his outrageous roles (think Elf), he delves deep into this troubled character and nails the quieter moments.
