Vert very powerful.....
31 December 2014 | by LogicIsEverythingSee all my reviews

this is one of the saddest films ever made. the screenplay is so thoughtfully deep, Blake Robbins, the screenplay writer, the director and the main character....the only word i can say is WOW...!!! he really knows the saddest feeling what a human being would have to face, suffer and to deal with. the family, the kids, the wife and the marriage before after the tragedy. the relationship among friends and colleagues, the mind, the shocks, the lost, the void and empty space of a soul. the lost hope of tomorrow. the....there's nothing i could say more when and after i watched this film. guess drunk driving is the most heartless and irresponsible behavior that a human being could commit.
