Paul, well advanced in his years, appears to recognize the image as that of his deceased wife Evelyn, Sophie's mother.

Family dramas can and mostly are exhausting. That doesn't mean they are not good. But that also doesn't mean they always have to be spectacular. Sometimes they just sort of flow along. The story is solid enough here, the acting lacks at crucial moments though. It's not that the movie loses its drive, but it seems to lose focus from time to time, which makes it harder to feel for the characters involved.
