Movie review: There's a story in 'Wilson,' but not a whole movie

A character, even when he's played by Woody Harrelson, is not a movie. "Wilson," based on a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, is the story of a grumpy, lonely middle-aged man; the sort who plunks down next to you on an otherwise empty bus and starts asking questions about what you're reading. Needing a jolt, he gets one upon reconnecting with his ex-wife, Pippi (Laura Dern), and discovering that the two of them have a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara), placed for adoption as an infant.
