This is a realistic and heart wrenching movie about loss and imperfection. Anyone with children has had a moment where you turn your back or look away and when you turn back there is a total sense of panic when you don't know if your child is safe. This father makes a big error in judgement, but that isn't what this movie is about. It's about the fragile connections we have with other people, the way people (even the district attorney) try to make sense out of the senseless things in life. Like in life, there is a tragedy that touches many lives and it can't be dealt with by just assigning blame to someone. The actors all did a beautiful job of portraying the complicated emotions people have when dealing with loss.
