This film establishes characters and follows their emotional vacillations in such a conscientious, thorough manner that its compassion becomes powerful. It's neither formulaic nor lazy, and offers a refreshing lack of cynicism, even granting some noble courage to characters who might not in reality be so graceful.
Neither angry nor pretentious, the film also never struggles to be more than what it is: a pleasantly optimistic, hopeful depiction of how people might heal under the weight of distraction following a tragedy.
The performances are excellent, and help to make the film very engrossing.
