Beautiful and moving!
20 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a short film with very little dialogue allowing you to focus on the flow and beautiful imagery. The child who plays the young boy brings a sweet vulnerability to his role and is able to communicate very well without using words. For instance, there is one scene where you just know he's pulling out the last $20 bill in his wallet.

Although this story focuses on the young boy, Jessica Chastain's presence is well felt in the few scenes she is in. Of course, if you've seen her already in Jolene or Tree of Life you already know that she's an amazing actor!

Hard to write a review on this without spoilers, but let's just say that I was brought to tears in the end.
