Rarely will you ever find a movie with a cast that works so seamlessly together. My God, they must have rehearsed forever. I got lost inside the performances unable to recognize the screen had borders. I felt like I was functioning as the camera, recording, experiencing, reacting. Sometimes it was uncomfortable sharing her family's travails, at other times I was privy to the fun a real family can experience when their emotions are genuine. I cheered, outwardly, actually, verbally! I've never done that. And, I wept tears, real tears, I was a soggy mess by the end of the movie. It was a very good movie. Even if you don't share what I shared you will appreciate what great acting and filmmaking can do for your soul. I thank everyone associated with this fine film; well done! ...I've also never done that before either...
