Just walked out (2/3 of the way through) of a screening at the Seattle
International Film Festival. So discount my review, if you must, but I
couldn't sit through it all.
Seriously painful dialogue and some of the most amateurish, non-nuanced
acting I've seen on film a very long time.
Sure the premise is somewhat hackneyed (death/dying, family, father-son
disconnect, etc.), but there is certainly a way to craft it so that it
doesn't illicit as many walkouts as this screening received. There were
at least a dozen in a half full, small house, before we gave up and
Some of my favorite films ever are Canadian (The Hanging Garden is
one), so I was eager to see a new Canadian voice.
I'm still eager to see a new Canadian voice. Not this one.
