This is one of those films where the plot takes second place to the performances, but in a good way . It's just that the plot seems to bring out the best in each and every one of these actors.
There are great scenes throughout, but a particular poignant one between Christine Lahti and Steven Hill is breathtaking. You feel like a third person in a conversation that you really didn't want to witness.
If you want to see great actors act, and see a great director direct, see this film!
