Beautiful landscape, solid writing, and a wonderful story unified by real acting and editing.
I found this film subtle and impactive even through the characters' very dramatic approach to life. I had an opportunity to really get the world of a lover, child, wife, and mother in this cinematic space.
The score worked so well for me and not once did it take me out of the movie. I loved seeing Diane Ladd. It was lovely spending so much time with Melora Walters but this is a Claudia (of Magnolia) type part, with fidgeting and discomfort.
I almost returned the DVD before watching Rain and I'm so glad I didn't.
