A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home. He survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia. 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.
Lee Chandler is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy.Written by
The scene of Michelle driving up in her car was very well prepared given the technical requirements of working with a fire. The cast and crew filmed as many takes as much house they had left to burn, but inevitably ended up using the first or second take for the movie. See more »
Flipped shot. When Lee and Patrick leave the funeral home, Lee wears a toque with its logo on the right side of his head. In subsequent shots, the logo on the toque moves to the left of his head. See more »
And if you're gonna freak out every time that you see a frozen chicken, I think we should go to the hospital. I don't know anything about this.

The film is long and slow but just about gets away with it. I did not realise that death was such a major part of this film. My partner died 3 months ago so I can relate to a bereavement situation now - previously it wouldn't have had anything like the same impact. I found the movie had a depressing effect. I guess there are a real lot of twilight zombie people out there only just holding it together.
