Directed by Mark Kemble
Elaine and Ed Kendall have more than their share of grief and suffering. Once a young couple in love they now struggle for a sense of stability in their Staten Island home. Their eldest son is suffering from the physical and psychological effects of war; his younger brother takes it upon himself to bring him peace and relief. Meanwhile, their special needs daughter brings another kind of chaos to the family. Even though Ed and Elaine explore options for her care, they’re really just hanging on to hope that things improve somehow.

★★★★ review by Serge (Hunter) The Movie Guy on Letterboxd
A sad movie about a sad family.
It made me sad.
No, there's more to this film, but I don't feel like typing.

★★★★ review by MaryAnn Johanson on Letterboxd
Exhaustion of mind and body is the primary sentiment in this sensitively observed family drama, drawn with an intimacy that is palpable and uncompromising.
