After the first ten minutes, I thought of forwarding it or even press the eject button, but I stuck to it and I’m pleased I did.
There is a lot to appreciate, from the variety of the characters, an interesting motley crew of dykes and boozers, to the community’s response to the tragedy, to the overall story.
I found it interesting and refreshing.
The drama is never too heavy and the actors are doing a great job in representing the pain of a loss and the characters’ messed up lives.
The film is taken from the book of the same title by Leslie Schwartz.
A Canadian production, the film is by Gaby Dellal, with Thomas Dekker, Lynn Collins and Elizabeth McGovern.
