I would love some recommendations on low-key dramas similar to You can count on me and maybe The Shape of Things, preferably from the beginning of the 00s. They are so comforting to watch for some reason.

You can count on me are also the perfect film to watch before going to sleep. It might be the Mark Ruffalo effect. I would much rather watch a film if Ruffalo is in it, and I haven't decided if it's a gay-crush yet or if it's one of those manly dude-crushes you have on someone like Marlon Brandon, but he's weirdly great, right? Right!?


I can't say I've seen those so my rec may be a bit off, but the great master of low-key drama is Koreeda.
Shillin' my thread below.

Still Walking and Nobody Knows are good starting points.

Off the top of my head: Me Without You, Dreamland (2006), Shattered Glass, The Dreamlife of Angels, Never Let Me Go, Blue Car, Junebug, Drinking Buddies, Brooklyn
That's some catch, that Catch-22.
