A little too saccharin for me.....
4 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I normally love moody, character-driven dramas, but this one just didn't do it for me. First of all, the mother was too saintly. I am sure there are wonderful mothers out there like that, however, they don't make for the most interesting characters. Secondly, there was just too much kissing and hugging amongst everyone. Sure, they had problems, but at the end of the day everyone loves everyone. I suppose I find truly tortured souls more interesting. While the siblings had some issues, I just didn't find them to be that damaged. Lastly, I don't feel the mothers illness was accurately portrayed. In reality, she would have been quite exhausted and not so bubbly (this is coming from a cancer survivor). On the plus side, the acting was very good. It was just too sugar-coated for me.
