different images of family relationship, return to past, significant moment to transform your life. at first sigh, nothing new. maybe too more elements, a too complex lesson about responsibilities and essential gestures/decisions but important remains the basic fact than it is only a fresco of choices. sure, it is not a great movie and its sins are many. but it is a honest movie and this fact defines it. picture of a side of America, without ambition to impress its public, it is a form of analysis of common realities in a clear light. the acting is OK, the script- not bad, and good intentions are admirable. a film about link between past and future, it can be good subject of reflection for each of its viewers.
