This film is simply appalling. I've watched it twice and the second viewing made me even angrier than the first.
The central character must scatter her husband's ashes in his desired location but there's a hitch: she suffers from an anxiety disorder which makes it difficult for her to leave home (agoraphobia).
What could have been an interesting illustration of the difficulties of living with an anxiety disorder is ruined by melodramatic acting and the depiction of the agoraphobic woman as neurotic, helpless, a burden on her kids and generally pathetic. In the end she irritated me so much I couldn't care less what happened to her.
People with agoraphobia are NOTHING like this film suggests, and it is disgraceful to portray them in this way. Trust me on this one. I've been agoraphobic for 14 years.
