Unbelievable, moving, film.
I had know idea what TBI (traumatic brain injury) was. After seeing this moving story my eyes were opened to the truth.
This is based on the true story of a TBI survivor Brian Sweeney.
This film will take you through the depths of hell this man went through to try to regain back any semblance of his former life.
Shannon Brown's performance is amazing as he wraps himself into his portrayal of a TBI survivor. He is like Jekyll and Hyde in the modern day. To see the effects that a TBI has on his character is eye opening to say the least. You literally watch a passive, loving man, husband, and father transform before your eyes after as fights to recover from his injury.
If you are not crying by the end of this movie, you have ice water in your veins.
The cinematography is excellent. The rest of the supporting cast is amazing.
Kelly Theibaud, who plays the wife of Browns's character is so emotionally touching. You can see the despair on her face, and in her performance, as she watches her husband deal with the issues his injury as caused him.
The directing was top notch. Kuba Luczkiewicz did an amazing job. He definitely cultured the performances that made this movie grasp at your emotions.
If you have nothing better to do on a Saturday or Sunday night, watch this movie. You will not be sorry. You will also learn about TBI and how they can pull a man, and his family down to the brink of destruction. You will also learn that with unwavering love and commitment, you can perceiver and overcome.
