The Skeleton Twins (2014)
Now Maggie is no paragon of mental health either--she is pictured in the bathroom about to take a handful of pills when she gets the call that Milo needs her. They come by their dysphoria honestly. Their father committed suicide when they were 14 and their mother is the epitome of self-centeredness. Not up to the task of shepherding her children through adolescence, much less trauma. The movies is about the complicated path back to friendship that the twins manage to eventually negotiate. Nicely done, if sad.
