I don't have any qualms either with admitting that I cried like a baby during this film. Everything about it was so "real" that it seemed like the family had actually lost their son to that suicide. The part of the denying mother Maggie, and the family's suffering and healing was very genuine also. This was an excellent film on the subject. I've seen the '80s film "Silence of the Heart" about a teenaged boy's suicide, but it doesn't compare with this one. I liked it very much, but I don't think my eyes could handle a second viewing.
