Very interesting, original story, and Kyra Sedgwick is absolutely spectacular, 8 October 2010
Author: charles000 from United States

I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I first started watching this, as it seems to launch into a sort of twisted edgy comedy at first, but as this film progresses, this story and the situations become very serious, compelling . . . and sad.

The ending is particularly gripping, certainly not what would be expected from the beginning of this film. Everyone does a very fine job of professional acting at its best, but in this work, Kyra Sedgwick really shines.

I don't think there is any other actress that I could think of who could possibly have delivered the embodiment of the Emily character more perfectly . . . she really shines in this role.

The story itself can be a bit hard to go along with if you have had a parental / family experience with certain neurotic or other difficult psychological challenges. I have, and in some ways could really identify with various aspects of this story and its characters.

This is not a light hearted film, despite its somewhat comedic beginning, but it is very well done.

I liked it, as a fine example of the craft of acting, and for a truly unique story worthy of note.
