The Skeleton Twins is not very uplifting
5 second plot: Just before Maggie tries to kill herself she gets a call from a hospital to inform her that her twin brother (who she hasn't spoken to in 10 years) almost killed himself. They try to figure out how they got where the are and try to make life better for each other.
5 second review: The central characters are solid. The performances are too. The story moves along slowly. We can see some progress and transformation here and there, but not a lot is going on. But it's still good. It's not boring. The only thing is: it's not going anywhere. Not really.
IMDb score: 7,3/10
