Powerful film about loss, pain, and forgiveness
8 February 2019 | by JGReviewsSee all my reviews

Sincerely, Brenda is about a family coming together after the death of their mother/wife. The film follows the father, a recovering alcoholic, who tries to reconcile with his estranged sons after a troubled time in his life when he wasn't really there for them. Sincerely, Brenda is a very well executed film, particularly for an indie film. I watch a lot of independent films and a lot of times you have to look past flawed technical elements, but Sincerely Brenda has very high end cinematography (I say this as a cinematographer myself), a touching score, and good acting and directing. From looking at his IMDB profile, it seems that this might be the director's first film, which makes this quite an accomplishment. I found Sincerely, Brenda to be a powerful film about loss, pain, and forgiveness that I would recommend to anyone.
