What was everyone thinking? The writing was atrocious. The editing was inexcusable. The film goes for some pathos that is totally unearned and unjustified. There are no characters, there are only cardboard cutouts. The israeli soldier?! The gay playwright that writes an atrociously pedestrian play about his familiy life?! The adoption services officer that complains about the characters's "relastionship with God" to ratel him unelligible to adopt?! Who are these people? Can't possibly excuse this trainwreck. Do yourself a favor. Don't go into this. This is inexcusable. There must have been hundreds of people connected with this dreck. Could no one have said "the emperor has no clothes"?!
