It's always such a pleasure to go to a movie about interesting people, slice-of-life as it were. Nothing huge happens. No car chases or special effects. Just real, human emotion and experience. A quiet little story about real people.
Patricia Clarkson is always interesting. Ben Kingsley is superb as the Sikh.
There are two scenes that had me laughing very loudly, but throughout most of the movie I was just smiling and sympathizing with the believable characters.
The story was not predictable. I enjoyed every second of it and highly recommend to anyone who enjoys character-driven movies.
