This is a great film, but I think it is worth it to read the other reviews to see the problems that you might be facing. I think it is going to be a three year affair but hopefully we will have seen and understood the full extent of the problems. The good point of this film is the feeling of effort and characterisation.The idea of the family being confronted with certain kinds of deaths, the realisation that you are now not in control of what happens in your family, is an intriguing concept that deserves some time in the spotlight. The problem that we are dealing with here is the emotional response to death in particular. You see the struggle of grieving and the reluctance of the family to make a decision about it. Even the very old mother who is distraught by the loss of her child is resigned to her fate and the family acceptance of it. The best example of this is when the old mother decides to have the youngster taken from her. The grief is palpable and so is the fear. When you are that close to somebody you really care about you will try to find ways to help them. And the other problem is the fact that we don't know who to blame. The family is always going to be blamed and if they have been using alcohol and drugs the blame will always be put on the mother. If the mother had done something that was really out of character the blame will be on the father. It's an interesting concept and it is brilliantly handled. I would say that the two children are portrayed in a very realistic way. The younger boy gets the most attention and is the one that really has the problems. It is difficult to know how to interpret the emotion that he shows on screen. Some of the other kids do a good job of expressing their feelings. The female lead is good in some ways, her scenes are not overly long and she does a good job of making you feel her agony. In the end it is not entirely clear what is happening and it is difficult to be absolutely certain. It is not the fault of the actors or actresses, and I am glad that they have taken on this challenging role.

Many people have commented on the flaws in this movie. This is a directed by Billy Bob Thornton, who has been in "Punch-Drunk Love" and "Ruthless People", two of the most manipulative and shamelessly phony movies ever put to film. But I think that this movie is about as realistic as "Dr. Strangelove" - which has also been given high ratings by the Academy. The basic plot of the movie is that while in a mental institution, a younger patient, Harry ("Walt") follows the doctor to a small town, where he becomes a celebrity, and has his portrait hanging in a local gallery. It is then that we discover that he was actually a surgeon in the US army during the war, and is now trying to re-capture his former glory. The acting is top notch. However, there are some flaws. For example, Harry has an extremely poor understanding of music - and very poor hearing, and he acts almost exclusively in one style of music. Also, he has the typical big mouth, arrogant attitude of the son of a star. The one other minor flaw is that he's a complete idiot. He keeps trying to convince the doctor that he is an expert, but he knows absolutely nothing about the music of the country. And, finally, there is a murder at the end of the movie. The one who did it is not clear. Nevertheless, the movie is worth seeing. The supporting characters are very good, and one or two of the actors, like Meryl Streep, have already appeared in other movies. So I would rate this movie as a worthwhile addition to the canon.
