Incredible movie -- well done!
16 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sister tackled a very sensitive issue (childhood attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), over-medication and misdiagnosis) skillfully and with grace. We saw the film at Waterfront Film Festival in South Haven, MI this past weekend, and sat in on an excellent Q&A with the director afterward.

We were extremely impressed with the actors in this film, and little Grace Kaufman who played Niki was wonderful! It was great to see Barbara Hershey, and she did a stellar job playing a mom with bipolar disorder. Reid Scott was also perfectly cast and was amazing! We loved this well-researched and beautifully done film. Thank you!!
