This was a 5 star movie for me...soundtrack and all...wonderful story line and excellent acting on all parties...worth watching and won't ruin your time to see this film.

If the soundtrack to a movie is stereo-typically obvious it does not help you feel anything, it might actually make you uncaring toward the characters and plot.
This movie might be great but the soundtrack really tries to ruin it for me.

Creative and smooth. I am impressed with Shawn Christensen, more so in his writing, directing than acting which is very good also. Great movie.

I remember see the original short on Imagemakers (KQED). It was nothing short of brilliant.

I was skeptical of a feature length film based on a super short film, but I had to see this.

I was pleasantly surprised. IFC produces some super indie gems. This is enjoyable.

Not a good movie in any way. Can't understand the high rating here and on IMDB as well. It's a mystery to me.

I enjoyed this film. It was the story of a man who has lost his way in life and finds purpose again when reconnecting with his family when he is asked to watch his niece on whole he is attempting suicide.
