Uaaaaagh. A waste of time.
16 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only reason I am giving this movie a score of four out of ten is because I'm being VERY generous, because I only watched 40 minutes of it. Around 20 minutes into the movie I started doing other things and just had this sucker playing in the background. Finally I went to this website, IMDb and checked the score. Once I saw it ranks around a 5, I stopped watching right there and then. Honestly, this film isn't for most. It is about a daughter moving back in with her mother who is elderly and suffering from dementia. You learn all that within the first 2 minutes of the movie. The problem is the movie does not progress anywhere at all. And I wasn't planning to waste anymore time waiting around for the plot to develop after I saw such a low ranking. The only good things about the film is the performance from the character playing the mother and the soundtrack is above average.
