Very good movie, but I wouldn’t recomend watching it if you aren’t emotionally stable at the time. This movie started off melancholy, gets sad quickly, then rushes headlong into major depression. The opening sepuence is brilliant in the way it sets the mood for the rest of the film; I knew exactly what I was in for with the opening shots of the lead actress. It was an emotionally wrenching ride full of hard choices for the characters and dumbstruck disbelief fot the viewer. Beautifully shot with some outstanding acting by the whole cast. Really glad I watched this flick, but I’m going to have to scrub my brain with a mindless comedy after this one.
