| Love, loss, isolation, family ties, and a road trip
This was slow going and well, not great even with the cast attached. Story follows three siblings, their dad and an ex-husband who travel across the country to collect the youngest sisters belongings after her death. Along the road trip they stop frequently for coffee and tea, bicker over car convoy position or who is riding with who, they cry, they laugh they have panic attacks as they share their memories and last moments of the family they have just lost. The viewer gets the occasional flashback to Annan Paquin the deceased sister.

This is raw at times, its interesting how everybody deals with grief differently. Some characters are really vague or underutilized (Melissa Leo) others stood out Ed Asner is powerful and Denis O'Hare is fantastic. I also liked an American speaking Rhys Ifans as the husband. Other family members included Paul Gross and Cynthia Nixon. Hummm Stephen Moyer directed.
