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>

Tough to watch
27 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Catherine (Carrie-Anne Moss) is still suffering after her 16 year old son died in a car crash. Dale (Andrew Airlie) is her frustrated husband. Jordie (Kevin Zegers) just got out of juvenile detention after crashing a stolen car. Carl (Michael Riley) is his angry father. Walt (Callum Keith Rennie) is a guilt-ridden college professor with an autistic brother Dennis. They are all connected by one incident as each has to search for normal.

There are some good acting here. I really like Carrie-Anne Moss. However it's just a tough movie to keep watching. It is a depressing movie to begin with but the three separate story lines make it disjointed and more difficult. It's never going to be a summer popcorn movie, but it's a little tougher than I even anticipated. The movie needs a few more connections with these stories. That's where the drama could truly explode exponentially. This could be even better if this movie is about Jordie, Catherine and Walt meeting and dealing with each other. It happens eventually but I would want this to be the entire movie. It happens a little too late.
