| Interesting....but something didn't work.
I love Kitchen Sink Dramas...this one was good, but something was off about it.

The story was good, a great cast, brilliant cinematography. It just felt like the whole thing was unrehearsed, poorly directed and badly edited.

Did they spend so much of the budget on the cameras that they had none left for rehearsals? It also feels like the director couldn't decide on just how to portray the father...one min the family are terrified of him, the next they are picking on him and joking with him....I'd love to see some stage productions and see how other directors deal with this...here it even sometimes feels like the actors were not in the same room when their scenes were shot as the reactions are all over the place.

Lots of great bits about this movie...and I enjoyed it...but it was let down by the direction and editing.
