'Everything Must Go'


Will Ferrell moderates his typical screen persona quite well to play a man whose life has collapsed around him on just about every possible count. While fighting inner demons, he's fired, his wife leaves him, and he's banished from his home - leaving him to reside on the front lawn, quite literally.

He decides to have a yard sale while trying to convince neighbors, including one played by Rebecca Hall ("The Town"), that he's chosen to live this way. Laura Dern and Michael Pena also appear in director-screenwriter Dan Rush's version of a Raymond Carver story, but it's clearly Ferrell's show. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
