Movie Info

Twenty months after a horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 20 elementary school children and six educators on Dec. 14, 2012, the small New England town is in a complex psychological tangle in the wake of yet another act of mass killing at the hands of a disturbed young gunman. The film provides access into the lives and homes of those who remain, all of whom have been indelibly changed by the events.

  • One needn't be a mother or father to be drawn in by what Snyder has captured in this quiet but powerful film. Just being human will do.

  • Snyder's filmmaking is elegant but basic, and it needs not be more. She's not there to dazzle us. She's there to bear witness.

    October 15, 2016 | Full Review…
  • What comes through is that the survivors have in no sense reached "closure" -- that meaningless word. This is a movie about people trying to make sense out of the senselessness of what happened.

  • Snyder has chosen to make a documentary about collective grief. She's created a devastating cry from the heart of a crisis ...

  • It's impossible to watch this film and feel no particular way about the killings.
