His wife (Portman) leads the family through mourning and eventually ends up cozying up to MaGuire's misfit brother (Gylinhall). Then, MacGuire is rescued and returns home where he has to try to begin a normal life.
Like I said, it's a good premise but I don't recommend it. Also, I couldn't watch MaGuire without thinking he was gonna change into his Spidey duds.
I really liked this movie. I think I gave it about an 8.5, I thought Tobey deserved an Oscar nom honestly.
