When I first started watching this film I really didn't think that it was for me - I have to be honest. But then somewhere around the 30 minute mark I got sucked in and before I knew it the movie was over, I was stunned and I had to retrace what I had jsut seen. Yes, there are a few things here and there, but at its core this is a really well done movie. It deals well and realistically with the issues of non-military PTSD and suicide. Something that a lot of films don't do well.
The lead actor does an exceptional job making you believe him as the character, not an actor and the lead actress just keeps you glued to her. I'm not really sure what it is about her but she really could be a huge star someday if she is guided properly.
Hard to watch? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely.
