    Not sure how I felt about this movie. Small twist at the end that proves things and people aren't always what they seem.

    This family drama should have focused more on the emotional impact of the tragedy on the characters, but instead it goes for artificial conflicts and pathetic clichés, suffering also from an excess of information with many unnecessary details added at every moment to create new useless twists.

    Such a tough topic, but Sigourney Weaver is the Lifetime movie character actor of real movies. Great acting from all of the cast, but the subject is not a cheerful one.

    Full of genuine emotion, powerhouse performances, and tender writing. Dan Harris' film is honest, dark and extremely thought provoking.
