Bill and Kate are in an emotionless marriage with their only son away at college. They knew he didn't sound happy but then comes the news that he was the mass murderer at his school killing 17 professors, fellow students and himself. They try to move on with their lives but they are held back by their own grief and the fact that the media and everyone around them view them as monsters. The more they fight it, they realize they only have each other.Written by
Very bland.. The shooting should have happened in the middle of the movie- instead, it happens right away before you get to know the characters or feel anything for them-there's no contrast to the movie-the acting is not the best either--or the directing. We know everything in the first 5 minutes. What's the point of watching the rest of the movie? you skipped right over the boy and the school. There is nothing to compare the tragedy to.
After 5 minutes i was bored. It was shot on video and looks like a home movie.It never touches you because we don't see enough of their lives before hand. We cant see the reason he does what he does. How are we supposed to feel anything for anybody when there's no getting to know anything about anybody?-with the exception of a 15 second phone call. I really wanted to like this movie- it could have been really touching but it stayed in the same mode through out the whole movie from the beginning. The characters were colorless
