Mary Elizabeth Winstead is spectacular in her role. One of the best performances in an understated and succinct screenplay I've seen. The story feels true to life but it's the actors who have made it sincere.
Gripping, intense, and heart-breaking. This is edge-of-your-seat drama much like Crash but fairly darker and more distressing. Its aim is clearly to preach, but the sermon is poignant: in a society where technology has made time a commodity to be apportioned, we often fail to connect with those who are right in front of us. And the consequences can be devastating.
An unbelievably true phenomenon that makes for a remarkable story yet a very concise one. I can't help but think that the one act play adapted from the same material as this film got it right. There simply isn't enough to make a full movie here. Plodding and dragging its feet along in quite obvious fashion, by the time it's clear where this is going to end up it should already have been over. The acting and feel good second act are worth the viewing but it hardly requires ones full attention or emotional capacity.
