The scene when Catch is playing, "Nature Boy" on the trumpet at the jazz club is just so genuine & touching. A big applause to the real musicians that were playing the tune.
The Director might have made it a little less subtle of how Steve takes the name, "Catch" after the accident. It is the last word he hears his son say as he is throwing the toy in the car before he is killed. "Dad...'catch'."
The way the film deals with domestic violence & how it can tear a family a part at its foundation but then is glossed over for appearances seems to be right on the mark. And despite the renewal of her parent's wedding vows, the underlying problem isn't going to go away.
