Generally, I enjoyed this film quite a bit. I don't have a lot of issues with this one aside from Addison Timlin's less than stellar acting and her character's useless part in the story.

Entertaining and original low-key family drama with comic elements.

Doesn't come together, but I'm not sure if it ever had the chance to, passing on family interplay and bitter reunions to play simplistically with profound emotions.
