Well-meaning, well made and all but allergic to subtlety.

Depression drama has good intentions but doesn't deliver.

The film benefits from an impressive cast. Given enough time, word of mouth could build a good-sized audience for this absorbing drama.

It moves briskly but leaves room for the stellar supporting cast to turn stock figures into appealingly shaded characters.
