Very meaningful

Great movie, very deep and emotional. I like the theme running in the background of this with the man landing on the moon thing that is on T.V, about how man can spend billions of dollars on sending men to the moon and yet there isn't enough money to give this family in the movie councelling so that the child can live a better life even though being rejected by the old man (her father or the mothers father?) also that the child has been so isolated that she isn't any better off than if she was sent to the moon.
