The film explores the pain and joy of working with children in the middle of the night. Frances (Tessa Thompson) and her husband Charlie (James Woods) are a well-meaning, happy couple, but they are in a difficult relationship. Charlie is a nurse who has struggled to make ends meet, but has always been there for Frances. He has little time for his wife and spends all his time in bed. When Frances and her son are taken by the army for a medical evacuation, Charlie finds himself and the kids in the middle of the night, in a deserted village with no electricity, running water or running gas. In desperation, he asks his friend, Willie (Michael Stuhlbarg), who is in charge of the farm, to help him get the kids to a place where they can stay overnight. Willie has a cat, but he is reluctant to give it away because he is concerned about being seen with an animal. So, the cats run off with the kids. It is a difficult time for Frances. She feels guilty for allowing her husband to be taken away, but she also is a little drunk. She has had enough of their childish bickering and the children's barking. She does not want to be with her husband, but she cannot get away. The children are far from easy to deal with. Frances has to deal with her own issues, as well as with the children's problems. She is unable to get the kids to sleep, and she is worried about her own health. The children are constantly fighting with each other. It is difficult to deal with the children's behaviour, as they are so young and they are only being around the adults. The film is very entertaining. The children are engaging, and the film is very touching. I recommend this film.

The film does not take place in a vacuum. The director, Timothy Spall, put the script together with the expertise of a talented actor. His cast and the story itself makes the audience care about the characters and allows them to be relevant to the plot. The acting is very good. Michael Caine is excellent in the lead role. He conveys the human pain that is so common in the human condition. He is a man who has lost his fortune and his ability to provide for his family. He is also a man who has become depressed. This is evidenced in the scene in which he looks at his wife and says, "You're not even going to miss the kids this year." This is a moment that I will always remember. His other performances are solid as well. Ellen Burstyn is also good as his wife, but the performance of Dustin Hoffman in the role of Spall's wife, Mary, is so wonderful that it's hard not to be swept away by the performance. It's hard to tell if the role of the father is given to Hoffman, who is excellent, or to him. I can't say that the film is without flaws. There are some plot elements that are just too improbable. For example, during the Mexican border incident, it is never explained why the two Mexican civilians who were waiting for their husbands to come home had not been shot by the customs officials. In addition, there is a scene where a family has a huge feast, but the woman is seen eating a morsel of food that has been left on the table. That scene is also implausible. But that's just a minor point in the story. As I have mentioned, the acting is very good, and the movie does provide some good laughs. One of the funniest moments involves an elderly man who is really old, but is caught up in the story and becomes a character in the film. Overall, this is a very good film that is worth watching.
