Dr. Brunell calls her mother because she "needs someone to talk to". She and the father pass the cell phone between them and end the conversation almost immediately, thus adding to her isolation from them, because they are leaving the house for the theater. However, on a cell phone, the conversation could have continued until they arrived at the theater, a time length of at least 15 minutes, if not longer. See more »

Strange Movie
27 December 2016 | by cammietimeSee all my reviews

This movie is very frustrating. It teases you about all kinds of plot points, but never really sees them to fruition or explains them. The ending is dramatically insufficient for the amount of time dedicated to the subject matter. This movie is a always looking for a plot and refuses to engage the most interesting thing about the town where everything happens. When the ending finally does come, it leaves you with many more questions than answers. Garland, the main town, is supposed to be 300 miles north of Anchorage Alaska, and only reachable by bush plane. Yet the town is quite diverse and large, with a coffee shop, general store, fancy cabins for people to live in and a major shipping company based there, anything but what would be found in a small town in central Alaska. They also complain about the cold, yet spend most of the movie walking around without hats or mittens, implying it is not as cold as they said it is. The random extras walking around downtown Garland would look right at home in a British Columbia tourist ski resort town and completely out of their element in a real Alaskan bush town. This movie promised so much frustrating doesn't deliver.
