Something different from the average Hollywood entertainment, grown ups with real emotions and insights.
This is a difficult movie, but worth staying with if you like fully developed characters, emotional depth and you don't mind something outside the normal linear Hollywood story telling format.

Her performance is touching and every moment she is on screen shines with her unique brilliance.
