This was the rare film that I enjoyed more after it was over--the plot is ok, the acting is good, the soundtrack is strong, the over/under/through is first rate--but the ideas around the complexity of the past is something that I did not pick up on while watching & really have enjoyed on reflection...one of those films I recommend to friends to see if they 'get it' or not--a worthwhile move...

The script, co-written by director Craig Johnson and Mark Heyman, really does capture some poignant and dramatic moments, and certainly benefits from the extremely talented cast.

so heartwarming! charmingly captured the seriousness life throws at you, and the silliness you (i) use to deflect it.
