Amazing Performances
14 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this when it played at the 2009 Cleveland Film Festival last year.

It's well worth a look. I thought the film was a very honest and moving depiction of a tortured family. The performances and direction were amazing.

The music was sometimes a little distracting and the Australian accents can be hard to understand at times, but I was really quite surprised by how moved I was.

I lost my brother to a car accident ten years ago and found the story to be one of the more realistic depictions of grief I've seen. It's hardly a light, fluffy movie, but once I settled into it - I was right there with it the whole way.
