Our Loved Ones

Our Loved Ones ★★★½

Like a lot of small Canadian films, the narrative took awhile to grab me, but it got around to it. At once a small indie and a grand family pic, by telling a multi-generational story using only small moments. The relatively unknown cast is wonderful, and although the aging of obviously young actors is awkward at times, I think I preferred it to having to adapt to a new person in the same role at different ages. Also, nice to see a (relatively) healthy father-daughter relationship on-screen, and a film that is about mental health rather than just using mental health as a plot point.
