It's very basic and raw.
9 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reviews on it were right. The film is all about David Oyelowo and Dianne Wiest bouncing things off each other, and it's got that going for it, that two such great actors can hold down a film all by themselves, but you do have to like Oyelowo and Wiest a lot to really like the movie.

It's one of those movies that does not really have a point or expresses it in such low key that only someone watching who has been in that position could really reflect on what is going on and fully feel the emotion.

It's not that pin point of a situation. A man loses his wife in a car accident and the only one who can relate is his Mother-In-Law, but she is a pain in the neck even after her child's death (although she's dying from cancer so give her a break). This is a harsh situation while they're grieving

Also thought Rosie Perez was great too in the small role she had. Wish it had more of her because I like seeing her on the screen a lot.

It was good that the director and writer did have three really good actors to implement their material. They were the redeemable factor in the mediocre film.
