Great film. It evolves at the pace of grieving. Loved the characters; each one had a blind path to follow, just like a tree in which each branch grows differently. It made me sympathetic to a group I never much thought about.

Honestly, the low reviews are garbage. These are Sundance films first of all, so have in mind when reviewing the type of indie films you are getting into. Secondly, this film was very heartfelt and adored. The realness of going through a divorce, I can understand her struggle between keeping her child happy and safe, and the desire to want to move on. The story is slow because it's freaking Australia! lol How fast pace do you want it? I really loved this film.

I dont know what movie all these good reviews saw but the one I just watched was very very slow and had no real plot. yes people are sad and grieve. This movie was no different and no real ending.
