    An Emotionally Rollercoaster. Being Torn Between Two Commitments Is Never Easy, Especially When The Workplace Is On The Other Side Of The World. Very Realistic Story With A Level Of Psychological Complexity That Isn't Seen Too Often In Military-War Stories.

    This one is tough to watch. The recently returned mother doesn't suffer from wounds or PTSD, but she has a hard time fitting back into her life with her son and ex-husband. While she ends up deployed again by the end of the movie there is a happy future with her son on the horizon.

    An army medic finds herself alienated from her five-year old son having returned from a 15-month tour in Afghanistan. She is at a loss as to how to uphold her allegiance to the country as a soldier while being a good mother. She tries but of course it does not work as she is reassigned to go back to Afghanistan. Why does it work for men (fathers) and not for women (mothers?) It could have been more interesting if the film explored the gender issue deeper. A good performance by Michelle Monaghan (the mother) though.

    Great performances from whole cast but especially Monaghan. Also good to see John Savage again, in a small role as Maggie's father. Movie deals more than just with the situation facing returning vets, but also with the complexities of modern families.
