I wasn't expecting this movie to be as heavy as it was. It deals with a woman trying to cope with the loss of her 3 day old baby daughter while dealing with a maladjusted 8 year old step son. Natalie Portman again proves to be one of the finest actresses of our time.. she's so amazing in everything. This is a great sleeper film. Aparently it was shelved for a couple of years and only released after she won the Oscar for Black Swan. Huh? why would they shelve a film like this when so many other cruddy ones are pumped out? I dunno... but at least it made it to my screen!
