Storyline

A grieving mother cannot "move on" after her son's death, keeping his room as it was, wanting her younger boy to be like his dead brother. A youth leaves juvenile detention, going home to an angry father and a lonely young step-mother. A college teacher whose brother has autistic behaviors separates from his wife and is attracted to a student. The narrative discloses slowly the mother, youth, and teacher's connections to a car accident. The paroled youth talks to the dead boy's girlfriend and must sort out his relationship with his step-mother; the professor encourages his brother to go on a date. Can the mother see her living son for who he is? In what ways can each be normal? In what ways can each be normal? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A little something, a lot nothing
15 September 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Call me stupid, but I did not get the point of this movie. As I am about to watch the Carrie-Anne Moss "videography" I kind of had to go through this one. ..and this is a tough I can tell.

Although there are quite interesting scenes - whether it is some nude scene (which are quite authentic) - this movie seemed not to come to an end. This is about regret, hope, affairs, pain, .. just too much of everything for me but nothing done the right (intense) way as it should be. The scenes are just to short and too much seesaw as one could get into it. It is as if the director wanted to put just everything in - whether it fits or not..

The plot could be told told in two sentences.. The story is nothing new.. There are many "side"plots which seem so go no where, that cross each other from time to time what made me lose the thread and finally the interest in this movie. The camera is very shaky in some scenes..

anyhow I like the actors but this is - to sum it up - neither fish nor fowl. Maybe you like it - or understand it - then tell me please ;)
