30 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie has a very strong lead performance by Melissa Leo. And I am not writing this because I was intimidated by her (she was present at a Q&A after the movie was shown in Berlin at the Festival there), but because it is the truth. Melissa will defend this movie with everything she has and if you are into the mood of the movie, you will probably rate it much higher than I did.

Apart from her really great performance though, I felt that something was missing that would make this movie unforgettable for me. I really liked the character (not loved, because of all the flaws she had) and the way she was portrayed and all the ambiguity surrounding her. If you like a movie that is slow and really just focused on a character (with quite a lot of issues), than you should watch this
