"I rarely ever take a film's critic's opinion on a film, CANT WRITE...CRITIQUE! This film was excellent, Michelle Williams' accent was a bit muddled but im American, what do i know? I watch British TV with people who portray themselves as Americans all the time and most times the accent is laughable. But when the material has bones who cares??? I won't spend too many thoughts on critiquing the critic...Back to the film; I connected with the characters and i most certainly was drawn in by the mother's grief, so much so, that i wanted it to all be a big mistake in hopes the director pulled a soap opera move...it was all a dream. This is an excellent film and i am glad i watched it despite the horrible reviews."
