A Truly Touching Film
21 August 2012 | by tpv-455-882858See all my reviews

Allison Mason does a wonderful job of telling the story, adeptly weaving the past and present in a way that makes each character's story unfold seamlessly and glues you to the screen. I was particularly taken by Gayle James' "Edie" who says little ( e.g. to Cal -- "You talk to much.") when she speaks aloud, but communicates loudly with her eyes and expressions. Leigh Rose is superb as well. She creates just enough dissonance in her character to make you a bit uneasy, but manages to become endearing before the film ends. It is a truly touching film of love & loss ( of both relationship and memory; survival & strength; and of character and compassion.
