Starting off a little strangely for me, I hung with it and it developed into a well directed, sensitive film dealing with issues of ethics and morality, the search for meaning in life for a disillusioned young woman, quality friendships and relationships, and the struggle for existential justification. The acting was very high caliber, the language is mild, and the dramatic tension is well managed. Some information/secrets are withheld from both the viewer and the protagonist which deepens the value of the film's intent, and for those who like resolution in a film by its end, this one doesn't disappoint. A good movie brings a tear to the eye on occasion, and this one does just that. Like life itself, there is disenchantment, pain, persistent struggling, discovery, and finally forgiveness and the resultant experience of satisfaction with a willingness to engage life to the fullest. An optimistic yet believable story worth a look.
