This is a realistic moving and well written movie about schizophrenia anchored by two fine performances. Tammy Blanchard is totally convincing as a mentally ill person in an illuminating follow up to her more sensational "Sybil" performance. Kristin Davis is sympathetic as her sister who cares for her after the death of their mother. She is good in her dramatic role and shows she can take on more serious movies.
The characters are well rounded and refreshing in their caring and limitations especially the financially pressed husband and sympathetic son.
It is worthwhile to watch this for the portrayal of the emotional, financial and practical hardships of looking after a family member with mental issues.
