Trivia:
When sitting down with Michelle Pfeiffer to discuss the character of Lillian, Alex Kurtzman decided on a more naturalistic, slightly disheveled look for the role. As he described it: "this woman probably hasn't put on make-up in a year. She's been sitting by her dying husband's side and when we first meet her in the movie, that's where she's at. If we're too glamorous in this portrayal, it'll ring totally false." Pfeiffer agreed wholeheartedly and altered her otherwise glamorous image to play the grieving widow.See more »

Its not the Brady Bunch thats for sure, 6 July 2012
Author: dtucker86 from Germany

Michelle Pfieffer and Elizabeth Banks both give A+ performances in this movie and they both deserve to be remembered at Oscar time. It is a joy watching these two outstanding thespians at work. It is amazing the intensity and depth they bring to their performances. They bring these tortured characters to life and you feel their pain. When I was getting ready to write this review, my first instinct was to say that there wasn't a really likable character in the film. That instinct was wrong. Its not that the characters aren't likable, its just that they are flawed and in deep emotional pain because one man didn't do his job as a responsible husband and father and the pain he caused lives after his death. This is a very dark film, very depressing, gritty and true to life. No "Brady Bunch" happy endings here folks. Surprisingly, I think it makes it a better movie. The only major beef I have with this film is the character of the boy Josh. He is without a doubt the most appalling child character since Wesley on Mister Belvedere. I kept wanting one of the adults to give him a good smack in his little fresh, dirty mouth. I always hate it in movies when they show smart aleck kids who talk to adults more strongly then real life kids would dare do!
