The three-way excellence of Forster, Swank and Shannon is the throbbing, tumultuous heart of Chomko's debut. Top-notch dialogue, earthy characterisation, a rich score...and an authentic angle on a weighty theme do the rest.

What ensues is theatrical, trying and emotionally over-wrought, with actress- turned-writer-director Elizabeth Chomko struggling to say anything that the likes of Still Alice, Away From Her and The Leisure Seeker haven't said better already.

What sets the film apart is the literate and insightful script by Elizabeth Chomko, who also directs, and a cast of stellar performers.
