"Divergence" is the story of two people at a crossroads in their lives. Tim Lawson, a helicopter pilot wounded in Iraq and looking for some peace, has come to the seaside community with the dread of his imminent return to the war. Clare O'Neil has lost her husband and child to a drunk driver, and now has sequestered herself in a small beach-front bungalow in the middle of winter. Blocking out contact with friends and family, she exists in a haze of prescription pills and alcohol. These two lost and broken people come together and find in each other the will to begin their lives anew. Written by P. Donnelly

A gift, a diamond
28 November 2011 | by sidney76See all my reviews

I only just learned of this movie recently. I'm sorry it took me so long to discover it. This film is like visiting a town for the first time and happening on to one of the most wonderful museums or restaurants you have ever visited. The acting and the script are perfectly believable and deeply moving. Every actor, every scene is special. This story goes right to the heart and remains there. Congratulations and thank you to every single person that made this film possible. It is a beautiful gift to be treasured. I remember a blurb on the cover of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest- "More, Mr. Kesey, more!" If I can borrow that entreaty, More, Mr. Donnelly, more!
