It took me a while to get interested in this movie. It was slow in the beginning and was like watching someones home movies. I got invested in the story near the end but overall I wish I had skipped it,

a real family story

I liked it, it's a slow movie, focused in a family's characters, that brings out what everybody knows but supposed to be secret. While not a "not to be missed" movie, it is of particular interest to those of us with an interest in human nature and feelings.

It was a compelling look into a family. I am not spoiling anything, though, when I say that this documentary was filmed with actors; not the family members and friends interviewed. Knowing this after the movie was over made we wonder more about the family.

Engrossing film

We were easily drawn into this story, but as time went on we became confused and then then drawn in again. Fabulous characters. However as the credits rolled and we realized that some of the vintage footage of this seeming documentary was staged and placed by actors, I got angry and then confused some more and then tried to find out which film critics were sets-ups and which weren't. It's worth seeing.

It was basically a home movie....probably fascinating for the producers family but not so much for everyone else....boring!!! I was looking for more insight to the underlying dynamics that affect all paternal, maternal child and siblings relationships.
