Storyline

1969 in suburban small town Canada. Ex-military man Jim Field, married with three high school aged daughters, wants to portray having the perfect, loving family to the outside world, which is anything but reality largely based on his behavior and thus relationships with the other family members. While trying to be what he considers the model father, he cheats on his wife and is a bit of a blowhard. A prime example of his behavior was several years earlier canceling a family vacation to Disneyland impromptu in favor of a two week nuclear attack simulation, taking the family to live during that time in the locked bomb shelter in their backyard. His wife Mary, a former dancer, suffers from chronic clinical depression, exacerbated by family events including her relationship with Jim. Regardless, Jim truly has a protective attitude toward her. She spends most of her time in a semi-comatose state in front of the television while the girls help her self-medicate with alcohol. Each of the ... Written by Huggo

hauntingly beautiful
14 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

an absolute dream-like beauty to this film. It possesses the best of say a Wim Wenders masterpiece, coupled with the narrative of a whacked-out indie great. Every moment is fully realized........never forcing the viewer to "feel" anything. heartbreaking and hilarious, with art direction that is a knock-out! The direction and the acting were gorgeous (especially the stunning Katharine Isabelle!). Both the narrative and pictorial silences in this film say so much more than most films do in the entirety. So much is left to the viewers politics and prejudices, it almost feels interactive (granted I grew up during this period, so that probably has a lot to do with it). If you're a child of the 60's / 70's (or a dysfunctional home.......and who isn't.........) this is a must see.
