Much of the film's unsettling nature is comprised of sheer silence which is often the most dangerous element...

It's tempting to compare this film to Ordinary People, since both deal with the reaction of upper-middle class family to the accidental death of their son, though new movie is more immediate, emotional and ambiguous.

The real story is in how the marriage is strengthened or harmed by the way each spouse responds to what's happening.

...one of those rare films that so vividly paints a picture of a community, that afterwards you feel as though you've been there...

Occasionally straddles that delicate line between bordome and excess, yet never fails to maintain a certain lever of interest.

Certainly worth looking into, but it feels a little too repressed for its own good.

Wields a hypnotic sadness, handled so powerfully that it's only in hindsight when you start to question whether there's significance beyond the surface-level fury.
