You will have mixed feelings about this movie. However, the remaining feeling for me is frustration : the cast and crew obviously has a lot of talent, but it wasn't used to its full potential.
This movie started pretty well, and the intrigue of Caroline Dhavernas character grew on me. It got me interested towards the end. Then, they ruined it. Boring, both the content and the way they revealed it.
The rest of the movie goes into too many directions. They tried to fit too many themes in one movie. While the other characters held their part well, they should have focused more on the mother and the daughter instead of wasting time on many scenes that didn't really add to the main plot.
The writer was obviously confused : he didn't know what ending to choose. He didn't have a clear idea from the start and it showed. Or maybe something bad happened during the shooting that prevented the original idea to be carried on the screen, but alas, we will never know.
