Wow
1 August 2010 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

This is a really excellent movie, centered around the lives of two women and their children. It starts off very slowly...and builds.. and builds... until finally at the end it explodes. The scope of the film is huge, touching on issues such as addiction, motherhood in the modern age, sexuality, marriage, infidelity, family relationships...etc ..of the lies we live with, the lies we tell ourselves, the games we play with our own lives in relationship with the lives of others. The situations are complex, disturbingly so, with no real answers other than holding on tight those we love.. I wish I could describe it better,... just watch it for yourself.
