Sthers mistakenly thinks the more unconventional she makes the characters, the more we'll like them. What actually happens instead is just the opposite.

There's so little to these characters beyond a few superficial traits that when serious things happen-and boy, do they happen-it is impossible to be moved the way Sthers intends for us to be.

There's a sliver of a plot about Harry raising pigs and his family feeling sad, but all is lost within a cacophony of bum notes and fake emotion. Howlingly bad.

[A] stodgy, ungainly and strangely reactionary family drama...

April 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Pretty much a chore from start to finish.

Caan and Hollander's chemistry cannot redeem this flawed foray into family love and trigger testing.
