Keeping it close
12 June 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

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.

Having said that, overall it's a solid effort. A movie that could play as one of those TV movie (drama) of the week and fit right in. You will feel for and with the two female leads to a certain extent, maybe engage more with one of them, than the other. Whatever the case, this is not light entertainment, so be aware of that
