When Tales of the City premiered on PBS 25 years ago, most viewers had seen nothing like it. Based on the first of Armistead Maupin’s nine novels about a group of friends — straight, gay and transgender — living at apartment complex 28 Barbary Lane in 1970s San Francisco, the exuberant drama featured pot-smoking, lovemaking and other TV-MA material mixed in with a soapy mystery. “It changed the conversation,” says Laura Linney, who delighted as Mary Ann Singleton, a naive Ohioan.

On a quiet, leafy block of Taylor Street, in San Francisco’s Russian Hill, there is a curious wooden staircase that springs from the middle of the footpath and ascends to a cobbled laneway overgrown with thickets.

Emmy-winning and Oscar- and Tony-nominated actress Laura Linney, 55, has won fans for her work in film, television and theater, from Love Actually to John Adams to My Name Is Lucy Barton.

Sunday 16 June @ 14:00

Sammy (Linney) lives and works in the town she grew up in, bringing up her son and keeping down a job in the local bank. The arrival of her estranged brother Terry (Ruffalo) brings along a level of support and complication as they find ways to co-exist and deal with past issues. You Can Count on Me is a beautifully written and performed piece that has authenticity and humanity running through it as it looks at the everyday complexities in human relationships and, in particular, that between brother and sister. Broderick turns in a first class performance as Brian, the pompous, controlling bank manager who Sammy both works for and unexpectedly falls for. This screening is in association with The Starry Messenger by Kenneth Lonergan, at the Wyndham’s Theatre until 10 August
