There have been few films that show us what real life is like when someone in our family has dementia.
Both Seymour-Hoffman and Linney work so well together, seeming perfectly believable as two very opposite sibling, both damaged by a very flawed parent.
Great acting, excellent script, compelling story and characters, nicely filmed and edited, entertaining AND it has something to say.
