Powerful, deep. I enjoyed tremendously, watched two nights in a row — then had to have the DVD. Films of inward journey are a favourite of mine...Robin & team put together a special project. It depicts what is happening in America from a very different vantage point. Economic in the detail provided to the audience, enough to let us know a deeply traumatic experience drove the character to seek nature & solace to try to find a ‘way back’ to herself. A film for deep swimmers...I don’t purchase many movies — this was a must to have.
I won't talk about the plot because I don't want to give anything away, but I can say that, as Robin Wright's directorial debut, AND that she also stars as the main character, I feel this is her finest piece of work, in a career filled with fantastic films! This is definitely a drama focusing on a character dealing with the aftermath of a serious trauma, so if you're looking for a comedy or romantic style of film, you should look elsewhere, as this is definitely a heart wrenching drama... A film at the peak of its' dramatic genre! Pick this up before it's gone... Oh, and grab a box of tissues as it does pull at the heartstrings!
Having already come to like Robin Wright ,her mature acting abilty,l knew l'd love to see her in this movie ,the theme and setting ,all appealing to me.And that she was directing it ,her heart and soul would be in it, portraying her character,realistically ,with the all the emotions and feelings in dealing with such a situation in her life ......... That's what makes a really good actor, they really feel what that character,with their personality ,in their circumstance ,would be going through....... ,like they are that person,...and portraying them perfectly. l was not dissapointed .All of the cast ,also ,very humanly, realistic. Though l had seen the trailer, there were some surprises,naturally ,but l was not dissapointed . Yes sad but satisfying. Beautiful setting .Quite a short movie.Will watch it again.
