It is a rather obscure flick so I wasn’t really sure what to expect from it but since there was a really solid cast, I was really eager to check it out. Indeed, I think that both Mark Ruffalo and Joaquin Phoenix are some of the most interesting actors at work nowadays and the fact they were both involved in this feature made me really curious about the damned thing. On top of that, the rest of the cast was also quite interesting (Jennifer Connelly, Mira Sorvino, Elle Fanning). Eventually, all the actors delivered some solid performance and the directing was efficient but, unfortunately, the story was decent enough but nothing really amazing, I’m afraid. The point is that the characters and their emotions felt really genuine, especially thanks to the actors involved but the whole thing never really managed to convince me that it was such a fascinating tale. Basically, at the end of the days, sure, it was a tragic tale, absolutely, but I don’t know, it felt too generic and pedestrian to really impress me. Anyway, all in all, I thought I was a decent drama and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
