No good deed goes unpunished
Hard to write a review about this without spoilers, but it's the kind of movie that people won't see without knowing something while not having the plot ruined.
I thought it was going to be a reworking of a little known movie where one of a sleeper compartment had died and the other passengers considered concealing it.
But it moved on from there and became a tale of people in difficult circumstances but still trying to help others.
None of the characters are especially gregarious or bubbly, but we quickly get to understand why. They do the best they can in their respective circumstances and what they manage is still pretty good, considering.
Worth watching and wondering what you'd do.
