What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Sam Brighton A beautifully woven film about ordinary emotions in heartbreaking times that still manages to give you the warm 'n fuzzies despite its flaws.
Pete Hammond A fulfilling family drama from the male perspective
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Adam Nayman Owen’s brusquely unsentimental lead performance is quite impressive.
Peter Travers Aussie director Scott Hicks, doing his best work since 1996's Oscar-nominated Shine, lets the story play out in Owen's expressive, haunted eyes. This movie will take a piece out of you.
C. Fuchs It's a decent enough effort that benefits from good performances
