Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Elliot Davis's pretty greeting-card cinematography, which lingers on birds, clouds and branches as it follows the seasonal changes, is better at evoking the passage of time and the rhythms of nature than all the sodden, pretentious dialogue.
Rotten: [It] feels padded even in its brief running time; it's a slight mood piece posing as a character study.
Fresh: The film stays afloat, if barely, thanks to Elliot Davis's uncluttered camerawork, a surprisingly unsentimental denouement, and performers who deftly undersell the script's corniest pretensions.
Fresh: A tactile, emotion-laden world of beauty, loss, recovery.
Simply the worst movie
Ok - I consider myself fairly "open" when it comes to movies: chick flicks, guy movies, indies, foreign films, classics. I like em all - as long as there is a PLOT and a purpose to the movie. This movie has neither. It is just sad… 100% of the time. The ending is particularly bad - makes absolutely no sense. Please don't waste your money. Find another real drama.
I just watched
I just watched this movie... It has potential, but it gets lost at the begining... Too short... Almost no drama... A lot of random scenes with no "conclusion". Bad movie.
Josh Lucas is great and the cinematography spectacular.
