I don't think very highly of the creative team for this movie because the only way they know to communicate how a person feels or reacts is to have a big closeup of the actor's head while he or she talks (and talks and talks and talks) about how he feels and what he or she feels about the other people. It's rather insulting when a creative person doesn't trust the audience's ability to understand something, and so everything is spelled out like this movie does. Gestures, facial expressions, mood lighting, colors, objects within a scene -- all these ways of communicating with an audience and making the audience curious are seriously under-used. 75% of the dialogue could have been left out; and if the camera had moved in or out more to show detail or give us the bigger picture, it would have been a much richer movie. As it is, it's a series of people's heads with their lips moving ... and saying things that are pretty trite and predictable.
