2010 Guide Analysis: "One of last year's highest profile premieres at Sundance, reviews were very good but the film didn't excite buyers or critics in the way some other high profile efforts like "An Education" and "Precious". Playing various festivals throughout the year, the quite emotional piece has finally secured a deal and will get a platform release kicking off in March.

The catch will be the emotional elements of the movie which is an at times almost painful reflection on grief thanks to the strong cast. Adult audiences who demand more from their cinema than mainstream fare usually provides will likely flock to it, but as for its chances of crossing over - that's unlikely for what is essentially a 'downer' of a picture, no matter how well it's made."
