A stellar portrayal of real life.
I just can't say enough about this brave and stimulating drama.
There was appropriate humor and equally appropriate tragedy. Real life. Sometimes, inappropriate humor and tragedy, just like real life.
You cared about every character, even though several may have been stereotyped to the extreme.
Real people do get sick.
The writing was crisp and eloquent.
The acting and direction were equally impressive. There were long takes that had the flavor of theater.
I applaud these top-notch dramas coming to the small screen.
Sometimes the big screen is not a good venue for every story.
I was sad to see it end, but one thing I've learned in my short visit to this planet, everything is temporary.
I look forward to the DVD release to share with friends that don't see Sundance.
