| 2 melodramatic women having a go at each other for 1.5hrs
I couldn't stand this film. It was really slow. Full of melodrama. Overemotional. The plot seems to focus mainly on an accusatory mother who thinks that the girlfriend has had a detrimental effect upon the young man who killed himself. I find the exchange unconvincing and histrionic. I just think for God's sakes get over it. Plus I don't think it's an accurate reflection of real grief in the slightest. Pitiful tears gushing don't convince me that somebody is grieving. Grief looks completely different. You can tell they don't really know anybody who's been through real grief. So I just find the syrupy emotionalism quite unpleasant to watch. And the idea of the evil stepmother sort of thing in the background having a go at the young girlfriend wasn't terribly interesting. I'm difficult to impress when it comes to emotional realism. But I suppose it's a decent attempt if that's their first go at making a film, but it wasn't impressive for me at all. In particular the emotional portrayal of grief. I'd say the vast majority of the population don't know what grief looks like, so this will go unnoticed and they will think it looks convincing. But to anyone who knows what grief looks like this will be unconvincing.

So basically two women having a go at each other for 1.5hrs. Interspersed with few flashbacks to time with the boyfriend. I find it all very tedious. And I couldn't care less about these two women.
