Time Out says

On the eve of being relocated to a rest home, an elderly woman (Burstyn) returns to her rural childhood town to reckon with her past. Along the way, we’re treated to flashbacks of her younger self (Horne) dealing with father issues, family crises and a life filled with disappointments. Burstyn can do maternal strength and strife in her sleep, but Kari Skogland’s hardscrabble weepie is still indistinguishable from any number of similar memory-lane melodramas. Also, did someone issue a mandate that Ellen Page must appear in every other Canadian film?
