Fantastic movie!
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Great acting, fantastic directing and just an overall very well made movie. I was really touched by this film in many ways, it touches on life issues and is a must see imo.

Do yourself a favor and check this movie out, extremely underrated!

Great cinematography, story, acting, directing and pretty much every other aspect was well done.

I don't want to spoil anything so I wont go into details about what the movie is about, other then there is a family and the mom is sick. It all felt so real to me this movie, which is rare in films these days.

Not 100% sure what it was that made me feel so touched by this film, all I know is that it brought up a lot of emotion and really touched me. Not many films have the power of doing that.

The director, cast and everyone else who works on this movie deserve some credit, this is what great movies are all about imo.
