Kightlinger captures the complexity of emotional processes and the indispensability of having confidence in those around us effectively increasing the power of the film. [Full Review in Spanish]

Along with the two main actors, there is the cinematography by Peter "Per" Wigand that is a third actor in their scenes, and music by Garth Stevenson that is the fourth actor. This quartet makes the movie come alive.

I was totally engaged in the slow paced, largely quiet and personal film that was unfolding before me. One of those rare times where I did not feel time pass.

Here Kightlinger creates a quiet and subtle take on addiction and familial bonds. Its rural location adds a sense of vastness and beauty that heightens emotions and allows sole focus on its actors.
