Storyline

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. A prime example of his behavior was several years earlier canceling a family vacation to Disneyland impromptu in favor of a two week nuclear attack simulation, taking the family to live during that time in the locked bomb shelter in their backyard. His wife Mary, a former dancer, suffers from chronic clinical depression, exacerbated by family events including her relationship with Jim. Regardless, Jim truly has a protective attitude toward her. She spends most of her time in a semi-comatose state in front of the television while the girls help her self-medicate with alcohol. Each of the ... Written by Huggo

Overlooked, breathtaking masterpiece
31 May 2011 | by Shell66See all my reviews

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! Unfortunately, nowadays people don't care about the substance or acting, all they care about is retarded special effects and 3D!

I just watched this movie and it blew me away. I am speechless, literally! I won't give away anything, I really think you should see it for yourselves! The atmosphere, the beautiful scenery, the story, the acting... It blew me away! Everyone in the cast did an amazing, wonderful job! I can't recall the last time I was this pleasantly surprised, no, pleasantly shocked by a film. Why isn't this movie known more widely?!

Amazing movie! Highly recommended!
