"From first-time writer and director Elizabeth Chomko, this 'captivating family drama' that will make 'you laugh as much as you cry' (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) centers on a family in crisis. Bridget (two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank) returns home to Chicago at her brother's (two- time Oscar nominee Michael Shannon) urging to deal with her ailing mother (two-time Emmy Award winner Blythe Danner) and her father's (Oscar nominee Robert Forster) reluctance to let go of their life together."--Container.

Well-acted film about the effects of Alzheimer's on a family. Highly recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby

People loving and looking out for each other - facing truths. GOOD movie!

Except perhaps for Blythe Dinner, I don’t think this film represents the finest hour for any of these actors. Granted, this is a hard subject to write about and portray, so maybe I am being a bit harsh. I had difficulty relating to the members ofthis family, but everyone’s experience is different.

A heartfelt movie that will move you to the highest degree of empathy when dealing with memory challenges of a loved one in the family - Hilary is brilliant -

A good look at family relationships and bonds when confronted with the care of a mom with progressive Alzheimer symptoms and the aging dad no longer able to effectively handle her care. Not all doom and gloom though -- some surprisingly funny moments as well. Well acted and emotional. A couple twists too.

A tough and difficult subject which we all have to grapple with at one time or another in our lives. A beautiful film. Have Kleenex handy. Highly recommend.
