A compelling drama that explores the different meanings of being a parent through the gritty, realistic lives of the struggling, blue-collar Porters, and the privileged Campbell family. Their lives intersect, intertwine and collide, all for the love of a little boy. This film bravely exposes the humanity in each character reminding us that we each have the potential to be the best and worst versions of ourselves at any time. Written by
The scene where Berry Pepper's character, Rip, is bitten by his dog was not part of the script until the dog decided to improvise it. Berry Pepper was actually bitten by his fellow actor, the dog. See more »

This is one of the best films I have ever seen. It is so well acted, that it is difficult to see the film itself separate from the acting; if that makes sense. Barry Pepper and Mira Sorveno are stunning in their representation of a flawed soul and the wonderful woman who loves him. I could not love Mira more. She is utterly beautiful in her totally natural manifestation here.
The strongest element of this film is the dichotomy between this less successful couple and their rivals, a very wealthy couple. The latter seem so one-dimensional by comparison. It fed my bias against the privileged. But by the end I took an arc.
Really nice work too by the young boy in the film. Barry Pepper is an inspiration to young actors with great talent who might despair thinking there isn't room in the industry for character actors still.
