I have seen it. It is really good YOU MUST SEE IT. Was in a film festival and saw it and should have one an other award.

The film invites us in to look at those burning questions - "Why does it happen and how would I feel if it happened in my family?" Like all of the best films, the writers give you the opportunity to explore the question - they offer up not answers, but simply the space and silence to feel the pain that Sam's whole family are living. The choice of actors was perfect - they are us - and the cinema verite approach to the camera work provides a truthful kaleidoscope of their family life - now broken into a million little painful shards of glass. We leave the theater without knowing why it happened or what we would do in the same situation but we also leave called to a better humanity towards the families who go through something that sadly does happen. It’s an adult movie and clearly deserving of the Toronto Film Festival win.

Good acting. An all. Ew perspective.

Quietly intense and beautifully done. It moved me and I loved it! I highly recommend.
