This movie is a great character piece with quality performances from the established actors. I saw it at Cinequest.
I recommend it to those who like character TV dramas -- "Six Feet Under," "Once & Again," "My So-Called Life" or recent films like "The Savages" or "Lars and the Real Girl." It had the ability to be moving, without being saptastic. It shows the holidays for what they can be - without the dark, Sundance festival-type cynicism.
Who knew Stephen Baldwin had this performance in him. Kae is predictably good in her aching performance of a woman on the verge.
This film should be seen beyond channels like Sundance and IFC - I'd love to see it on FX or AMC next Christmas.
But definitely worth the price of the DVD.
