Powerful stuff
31 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Olivia Wilde's performance is astonishing and has haunted me; compelling me to write this review two week after seeing the film. Luke Wilson and the rest of the cast also put in sterling performances, but it's Olivia's character that feels painfully authentic as you watch her deterioration.

The movie is a concise study of loss and as a result is relentless in its depiction of grief; probably not a great choice for a fun movie night with friends... Reed Morano does however inject love and beauty into the proceedings with thoughtful cinematography and a stirring soundtrack.
