I happened across this film at the Montreal International Film Festival and was thoroughly rewarded. An excellent portrayal of the complexities of family relationships, and the painful process of awakening to truth. Katherine Isabelle's performance was so rock-solid that my belief in who she was didn't falter for a second. In fact most of the actors gave amazing performances, in roles that were complex, and in some cases, I think, untypical of what an audience might suspect. An unassuming movie that worked very well.
