Loss of ...

Let's say the inciting incident (or rather accident) happens early on in the movie. And while it is always important to know someone to mourn them (especially the way she's being mourned here), we do have to do that while on the journey. The journey of moving on, which may sound like a pun, but is anything but funny.

So this is full on Drama and anyone who lost someone dear to them, by whatever circumstances, should be able to empathize even without a deep connection from the get go. Still this is heavy and the question is if you want to watch something like that. If you do there are the actors who really do their part as good as possible. Dianne West and our main character are the driving forces, but it's also nice to see Rosie Perez back in Action. Decent enough, if you can cope with it

So disappointing

I made a point of booking early to see this film when it was announced at the Victoria Film Festival. I simply went on the fact that the two actors headlining would make it a powerful engaging movie.

This was obviously a labour of love for David Oyelowo (producer) and his performance is to be quite honest "over the top" and I am a fan of his work. I was so disappointed with the dialogue between the Oyelowo and Weist, as much as this is a difficult subject matter, in my opinion the writer did not give them sufficient material to work with.

I left the movie not having any emotional attachment to the previous 82 minutes watched and feeling my time wasted.

Almost a Mainer

Sherwin (David Oyelowo) and Fiona (Hani Furstenberg) are a mixed race couple living in Atlanta. When Fiona dies in an auto accident, Lucinda (Dianne Wiest), Fiona's mother, Invites Sherwin to come up to Maine for a bit. Why? I have no idea. And why he went is even more puzzling. Lucinda has cancer and is combative much of the time, with moments of near pleasantry. The film is a drama of his stay, discovering his wife's past, and mom's apparently trying to cope with her daughter's death, one that she was not as close as she could have been.

DRAMA SPOILER: Of course IT does come up and is perhaps the crux of the issue. Fiona, the ever liberal, chose to be with a black man as a way of rebellion. Lucinda and Sherwin try to understand Fiona and come to terms with her death.

The film was all light drama. The acting was good, but the film dealt a lot with grief and attempts at Maniac humor were light.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.
