Great indie film!
29 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great drama for any independent film lovers. Very real and natural acting, great storyline. It's a very moving film, with a lot of depth and emotion. All of the actors were great in each of their roles. The woman who played the mom was insane! It looks beautiful which is interesting in contrast to the edgy quality of the story. I also loved the score and music. Sometimes that can be overdone, other times it's not even good enough to notice, but in this movie it was perfect. The filmmakers were at the Boston Film Festival for a Q&A and it was really cool to find out that they were a sister team. Look out Cohen Brothers! See this movie if you can!
