Meadowland is movie about coping, grief and life you lead... Olivia Wilde gives one of her career best performances here after Drinking Buddies. She get through the characters skin in sync on how her character is leading her life. Her senses, how she is clinging to a hope, she doesn't want to believe the reality, she is trying to cling on to a child whose mother is a mess, father doesn't care.
The movie revolves mostly around the honest performances given by the actors.... The story itself is not that strong to get going. But still it is worth a go.
