Compelling film
16 December 2015 | by lianamnobileSee all my reviews

this is a very compelling film about the complex relationship between brother and sister made even more complicated by the brother's severe autism. beautifully filmed, beautifully acted, and enjoyable all around. many of the actors have gone on to have great success, and their passion for this project is palpable through the screen. incorporating themes ranging from illnesses including cancer and autism that are personal to an overwhelming majority of the American population, child, spousal, and sexual abuse, neglect, and most importantly family, this film tugs on the heartstrings, but leaves the viewer feeling uplifted and hopeful.
