Highly recommend this film; it's a story that stays with you days after viewing
19 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

This film takes a real life perspectives upon the aging process. The main character Neil, after breaking his hip, ends up in a nursing home. Throughout the film Neil struggles with this new life, and this new reality of needing constant assistance. Neil's children quickly become distant, this aspect of relationship the director does not shy away from, and it adds greatly to the depth of the film. Also explored is the aspect of forming new, endearing relationships in the nursing home, and the wrenching heartbreaks that go along with the aging process. Highly recommend this film; it's a story that stays with you days after viewing.
