I recently saw this film at a special screening. I didn't know what to expect but was ultimately very happy that I attended the event. The story about a dysfunctional family rings true, as the relationship between siblings is portrayed in a very believable way. I really enjoyed the acting by the entire cast. I especially liked seeing Malcolm McDowell playing such a different type of character. It should also be noted that the soundtrack was very good, especially my introduction to "Flogging Molly" and it's always nice to hear new songs by Susanna Hoffs of "The Bangles". Even though the film had a few slow spots, overall, the film was very moving, yet not overly sentimental.
