At first, this seemed purely a bleak film, with a good cast and nothing wrong as such but not a massive amount entirely standing out /going for it otherwise but by the end, I felt it was a better film than I'd perhaps initially predicted, or gave it credit for. The plot is slow but its very thoughtful and its a film that most people can probably relate to, in terms of siblings trying to reconnect, to re-build the proverbial bridges. The children (Maggie and Isabelle) were good. Its quite emotional by the end but not in a horribly cliched and predictable way - in a good, thoughtful way, I'd say. I would recommend this film, yes.
