Thumbsucker (2 stars)

Thumbsucker imageTeenager Justin Cobb (Lou Taylor Pucci) has an embarrassing secret: He still sucks his thumb. Berated by his father (Vincent D’Onofrio) for the childish habit and unable to confide in anyone, Justin lets his loopy orthodontist (Keanu Reeves) try hypnosis. It works almost too well; before long, Justin needs another crutch to help keep his angst at bay. Vince Vaughn and Tilda Swinton co-star in director Mike Mills‘s 2005 Sundance entry.

Geoff’s Comments: A Good cast, an interesting story, but nothing that stayed with me once the credits rolled.
