Goofs

At the cemetery, the young Marine comes to Elaine and offers to fire his rifle in honor of her son's passing. The young Marine says "I'll fire all 21 [volleys] if you like." This is a violation of military funeral protocol. In the United States, Twenty-One Gun Salutes are reserved for funerals for presidents, ex-presidents, or presidents-elect only. At military funerals for soldiers and sailors, protocol states that a Three-Gun Salute (three volleys) will be performed by the honor guard. A typical honor guard will consist of 7 riflemen and this is often mistaken to be a 21-gun salute (7 rifles being fired three times each. 7 X 3 = 21). Even so, this still is considered a three-gun salute no matter how many rifles are fired. The proper action by the young Marine is to fire three volleys only. See more »

sad movie about a sad, sad family
17 June 2016 | by bpladybugSee all my reviews

This is a good film. The performances are excellent. For Theo Rossi fans he has a major part and his work is just fine, touching, and realistic. I was happy to watch him for extended scenes because I use to savor some of his brief scenes on Sons of Anarchy. Not sure how much the audience will cross over from SOA to this. But I enjoyed both.

Karen Allen shows the grief and love of this mother who has an indefatigable spirit to help her daughter. An amazing portrayal of a developmentally disabled woman by Iris Gilad. She is a young stage actress making her film debut. We will see a lot more of her.

The father played by the silver haired Michael Harney is every bit the crusty, irish alcoholic drowning his sorrows at the neighborhood bar without being a cliché. The handsome Johnny Wentworth is the oldest son - a disgraced veteran with PTSD and a nasty drug habit.

Calvin Dutton is a newcomer and he knocks it out of the park playing the suitor of Deedee. He is great.

So, it is sad. This story is major sadness - such as you experience with Eugene O'Neil or Tennessee Williams. After you experience what you THINK is the climax there is still 30 mins left.....room for even sadness. Don't watch the movie if you are sad, as I did.

The film is understated, realistic, and depressive however I promise you will end with a smile. There is hope for these people.
