Great!
19 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a very impressive first film! The writing, cinematography, and actors' performances were terrific. The lead actress and the two children in particular were excellent, and the husband/wife relationship was very well-portrayed. Without giving anything away, the plot puts a lot on the wife's shoulders, and the lead actress, who seems to have been perfectly cast, conveys that pressure/responsibility very convincingly. Again, the cinematography deserves a lot of praise: there are some very beautiful shots of nature and of more or less industrial farming that very effectively set the tone. Overall an excellent final product.
