The cast is first rate and they leave it all on the screen. Bravo to the cinematography for giving us an inside look. We are a part of the story and not marched through the Director of Photography's bag of tricks. It is appropriately shot. The viewer is voyeuristically welcomed into the story. There are no cinematic distractions. Presentation is paramount. That lends to great direction.
No doubt this story will be hard to watch for anyone, especially for those who have suffered the experience of having a baby die. That being said...this situation is due your respect, time and attention. Our babies deserve as much.
You will laugh. You most certainly will cry. You will be entertained and you will be challenged. Bravo to this film team. My condolences to those who have walked this path. 10 stars for Return To Zero.
What we want is ACKNOWLEDGMENT. We want our grief acknowledged; we want our children acknowledged; and, we want our parenthood acknowledged.
Return to Zero accomplishes this goal in so many ways. It validates those who have experienced child death by showing them that they are truly not alone. It allows them to see a couple experience the rawness and intensity of emotion in the aftermath. It gives them a window into how some couples find it difficult to communicate or find comfort. And, it provides hope in knowing that our children that died are ALWAYS a part of our family - even when healthy subsequent children are brought into the world.
It also provides family and friends of bereaved parents with a glimpse into our completely crushed world. For those who have never experienced the death of a child, please watch this film. You will learn very quickly what NOT to say to a grieving individual. And, you, most definitely, WILL gain compassion, understanding, and sensitivity for all that your loved ones have gone through.Read more ›
And then I'm falling. Remembering. Lost in the experience all over again. The fear, the knowing yet not knowing, the weight of the loss, so sudden and violent. It rips out your insides in one fell swoop.
Sorry, spoiler. The baby dies.
I sat through all two and a half hours of it and I don't think I stopped crying. Minnie Driver captured that empty, hollow feeling completely. They ask, "Did the baby have a name?" and I felt that hesitation--as if naming him made it final.
I am naming a dead child.
I know what that's like.
And Paul Adelstein does an amazing job as the father--burying himself in doing something, anything. That helpless, lost feeling of a man without a direction. His honest portrayal of loss is poignant and painful to watch.
But it is all very, very real.
I hope everyone watches this movie. Not because it's an amazing piece of cinematic genius. This is a Lifetime movie we're talking about. But it's raw, it's emotional, and it shows stillbirth like it really is, for the most part.
We're all different, of course. Not everyone handles things the same way. But we all remember the moments we have in common.
We all remember the moment we found out. The first time we saw our dead baby. The last time.
We all remember that person who said, "Everything happens for a reason.Read more ›
