| Interesting film about a woman finding her way back to life
Very touching film. The film is beautifully shot with great attention to detail. The actors are all well cast and do great work.

High quality is the hallmark of this film.

The story is about a woman who's her husband died. She tries to ignore his death by staying in her apartment and maintaining an imaginary relationship with him. When she is inadvertently locked out of her building, she finds herself again.

Kristen Shaw did a very good job in the lead. She was able to capture the woman's fear and anxiety.

Ronald Hunter, who played the manager, did an outstanding job – would have liked to see more of him.

Todd Kaufman, the director and writer, has done a great job with an interesting subject.
