Touching movie that reminds us about how easy life gets out of track.
Since I am in a similar situation myself (even though I'm not as fu**ed up as the father in the movie... yet) I was very touched by this movie. Everyone who is/is becoming as him really should. Once again, I'm having a reminder about where my life is going, still I wonder what the hell would need to happen before I will get myself together and fix my sorry life.
Check out this movie and see what happens in their family, the kids and the father. Is this what will happen in your life? Some of us really should think about what we're doing.
For short: This is a very strong and touching movie, reminding us about the reality for ever too many families in our society today. Though, details probably vary from case to case.
