British actress Shirley Henderson uses her soft voice and tiny frame to great effect.

The hardship of it is immediate, but it never feels forced or exploitative. [Kathleen] Hepburn cares for her characters too much to force matters in such a way.

A poetic study of familial relationships straining and strengthening under the pressure of serious illness.
