Storyline

An upcoming exhibition celebrating photographer Isabelle Reed three years after her untimely death, brings her eldest son Jonah back to the family house - forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene and withdrawn younger brother Conrad than he has in years. With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently.

Disaster!
19 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was one of the worst films i've seen in a long time. The direction was all over the map, i found very little sympathy for the characters, particularly the two young boys. The acting was not very strong. The movie was also way too dramatic and overdone. I'm just not clear what the director was trying to convey exactly? I blame most of the issues with the Director. This is unfortunately a very bad movie and not worth purchasing a ticket for admission. I'm sure this movie will be gone from the theatres very soon. Word of mouth will send this film too Net Flick soon. Wait for a rental and even then i'm not sure this film is even worth a rental. It truly is that bad. Two Thumbs Down....Way, Way Down!
