Five days in the life of an American couple immediately following the accidental death of their child. An every day story of tragedy, loss, acceptance, hope and renewal. 'Morning' follows the divergent paths of Mark (Leland Orser) and Alice Munroe (Jeanne Tripplehorn) as they circle each other in a heart-breaking pas-de-deux of grief before finally coming to grips with their shared loss.

This is an amazing movie in a few ways. I feel like there used to be many more movies like this one, i.e., deep in the way it presents people and their emotions. There are few characters and not all that much action. Thus, the movie goes in depth into the characters and action that are in it. The acting, especially by Jeanne Tripplehorn, is great. Likewise, that of her husband, Leland Orser, in both the film and life. The film's and their portrayal of intense grief is just that, intense and moving. The film is done slowly and subtly, different from so many films which are fast and in your face, leaving nothing to the mind or imagination. This film brings the viewer right into it. I learned what was happening by experiencing it, if that makes any sense.
