1969 in suburban small town Canada. Ex-military man Jim Field, married with three high school aged daughters, wants to portray having the perfect, loving family to the outside world, which is anything but reality largely based on his behavior and thus relationships with the other family members. While trying to be what he considers the model father, he cheats on his wife and is a bit of a blowhard.

It should be a crime of some sorts that movies like "Falling Angels" are so completely overlooked, while overrated garbage like "Shutter Island" and "Iron-Man" get all the credit!

The atmosphere, the beautiful scenery, the story, the acting... It blew me away! Everyone in the cast did an amazing, wonderful job!

Amazing movie! Highly recommended!
