Very slow start to this film. I was bored after 1/2 an hour. Did not watch.

I knew next to nothing about this film prior to seeing it. This is one of those films where this may be the best way to see it. Concentrate on Toni Collete’s character and her sons. It is a great film dealing with a serious social problem that has no magic cure. The film’s theme is mostly sad. You should be able to take it like medicine. After all it is a movie. Maybe it will strengthen your ability to have empathy for others.

Movie is slow paced, so, Some good raw acting from Collete and Reynor can't save me from loving the film plot pace...interesting script, and direction dealing with the serious problem of an Irish family dynamic of love and alcoholism.

I'll probably will never rewatch... but liked seeing Collette showing emotional role.
