Profoundly Human, Achingly Complex Masterpiece | Faith and Film

This month’s film is an Oscar award-winning drama set in a New-England fishing town. Critics note that the story is “pulsating with urgency and feeling, not deadened by the suggestive framework of its premise.” An uncle and his spirited teen aged nephew must deal with the loss of the man who held their family together. 96% Tomatometer.
From top critics:

“A sensitive character study that feels profoundly human and finds an enviable balance between drama and humor.”

“Unforced acting couples with a nuanced, insightful script to tell a story that, although seemingly simple, is achingly complex.”

“The sadness of [the film] is the kind of sadness that makes you feel more alive, rather than less, to the preciousness of things.”

“An extraordinary swirl of love, anger, tenderness and brittle humor.”

“a masterpiece in a minor key, an exploration of grief that never lets its characters – or its audience – off the hook.
