Marc Forster directs this chilling psychological drama about a young mother trying to come to terms with the loss of her first born. Angie (Radha Mitchell) and her husband Russ (Justin Louis) live a quiet suburban life. At the film's opening, Angie, along with her best friends Judith (Catherine Lloyd Burns) and Barbie (Megan Mullally), who also happen to be pregnant, gleefully discuss morning sickness and baby showers.

A riveting haunting chronicle of a young mother who's lost her baby (a splendid Radha Mitchell), the film lacks sharp narrative but has emotional immediacy and intensity and displays the voice of a gifted director, Marc Forster, a major talent to watch
Everything Put Together takes a couple of curious turns that you will either applaud or hiss at, depending on the type of film you are looking for.
Aims for genuine discomfort, and it hits the mark with intelligence and style.
The subject matter is queasy, but Radha Mitchell ... is pitch perfect as Angie.
Despite an evocatively dark-toned DV atmosphere, is too responsible to erupt into the kind of operatic maternal horror it keeps threatening the audience with.
[Foster] shoots this rather grim film like a pretentious horror flick.
Suspenseful and satirical, it approaches a modern day suburban nightmare.
While pockmarked by some flaws and blemishes, it remains an intriguing effort, marking the debut of a young director worth keeping an eye on.
It may be a decent reflection of the shallowness of our society, and the unwillingness of many to get involved when they're most needed, but it didn't evoke any emotional reaction from me...just the feeling that I'd been robbed of my time.
Moving down the list: Suburban dread? Check. Social statement about medical incompetence? Check. Shot on hand-held digital video? Check.
