Powerful Acting
5 January 2020 | by kvega009-583-589999See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see this film at the PSIFF and what a great choice. The story is heartfelt and the acting is heart wrenching and amazing. Lena Olin's performance jumps off the screen and tugs at your emotions. Bruce Dern is top notch as always. The story is ultimately about love, family, and sacrifice. If you get a chance to see it, go.
