(fr) wrote: I honestly just can't believe this film I am a huge Ben Affleck fan I think the studios just do not give him the time he needs for his films and scripts primary example of why he dropped out of directing the Batman this movie was very dole at times and if the script would have been brushed up a little bit it could have been a very great film everyone has a bad day at the office but still looking for to seeing him as a actor and a director.

(it) wrote: At first blush a tale about a paranoid father and repressed daughter on the fringes of society in a remote part of Canada gradually reconnecting with the world around them, this is given a macabre spin by the lonely girl's connection to a mysterious group of corpses she finds in the woods nearby, and various acts of violence occurring off camera that lend some rationality to the father's shunning of society. An essentially simple premise given a touch of the weird like a Mike Leigh and David Lynch collaboration, and enlivened by splendid performances throughout, this will be quite unlike any other film you are likely to see this year.

(kr) wrote: An old man falls for a really young caretaker. He's about as lecherous as he sounds, so as a love story the film isn't very profound or interesting. Yet, it manages to be a rather charming film about old age on top of that.
