Orser, to his credit, never resorts to psychobabble, cheap sentiment or emotional shortcuts.

Leland Orser makes a raw, soul-searching feature debut as writer, director and star in "Morning." He plays the devastated father opposite his real-life wife, Jeanne Tripplehorn.

One of the more harrowing explorations of grief ever brought to the screen. By the end of its 95 minutes, only a faint ray of light has penetrated the gloom.

Though mourning is a part of the human cycle, Morning is not an easy film to watch -- save for the great acting by the entire cast.

Mr. Orser is a director worth watching. His work behind the camera-as well as in front of it-is clean and direct, unsentimental almost to the point of austerity.

Too much of the same emotion and too little back-story doom this movie to tedium.

An initially intriguing but ultimately exhausting tale of grieving parents left quite literally dazed and confused in the wake of their young son's death.

It often seems like an acting workshop: Behave as if you are the parent of a dead child.

It's a difficult sit, and not nearly as moving as it should be, with its central idea of lost communication buried under layers of artificiality, damming the mournful flow.

The effort here counts for something, but the emotions may be just too much.

As an exercise in grief, Orser's drama is affecting, exhausting and something of a shortcut ...
