Not For Everyone
Verified purchase
The quality of this film-festival type production is excellent, but it's not for everyone.

Without giving away all the story, it is a very sad film about loss and grief. The 'Morning' title is a play on words for 'Mourning.' It's a fairly free-form character study of those who have lost, and those around who have to deal, or not deal, with those who have experienced a tragic loss.

Jeanne Tripplehorn is phenomenal. Writer/Director Leland Orser is also good; however, his character spends the 2nd half of the movie going through some very bizarre ways of dealing with grief. The stellar supporting cast is excellent.

But I'm not going to lie. It's a sad, heavy movie and a study of what not to do, what not to say, to someone who is experiencing loss.

Leland Orser is top-notch
Verified purchase
This isn't my typical film genre. I'm more an action, destruction kind of film viewer, but Leland Orser is such an incredible actor I just had to see this, and I wasn't disappointed.

It's not immediately known that the central characters have lost their only son to an accident as they both go through their own grievances of blaming one another, blaming themselves. It's a very compelling look into the lives of adoring parents trying to cope with the loss of their little boy and the trials they go through to find one another again. A Must see!

Shockingly real
Verified purchase
Actors are all very convincing, but Jeanne Tripplehorn is stupendous as the grief stricken mother. You feel her pain. She is difficult to watch, but also so compelling you have to keep watching. If you allow yourself to, you will double over in emotional pain yourself.

Missed opportunity....

I wish this topic had been explored in more realistic terms.
The desire of "normalcy" after a "close to home" life event is real. But somehow parts of this movie falls short.
The time line of the emotions experienced, and especially the opening scenes simply does not fall into "real life" scenarios and rings false.
Nevertheless I'm glad I saw it.
