Beautiful, haunting, thought provoking... see it!
13 November 2014 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I think I was expecting something preachy, something heavy handed. But instead Kimberly Levin succeeded in doing something that's very difficult to pull off: she wrote and directed an incredibly engaging story that MIGHT have an agenda, but instead entices the viewer to ask questions not only of the motivations of the characters, but of themselves. There wasn't a moment in which I felt bullied into a point of view. It's provocative in the best way possible. I loved this movie so much I watched it twice. The cinematography was beautiful and the acting heart felt and honest. The mother's choices were complex, and portrayed very convincingly by Joanne Kelly. I wanted to hug the children, who also did a great acting job. It left me wanting to know more about them and watch to see what kind of people they would grow into. Well done!
