Highly inteligent film with a positive message...
Verified purchase
This is not an easy film...certainly not your typical care-free Hollywood romantic comedy where the viewer expects a happy ending as the final conclusion. There is a lot that is happening in this film. It is an Irish-German co-production with mostly Irish actors and one American. Now, how weird is that? The movie is about a young family in the provincial town somewhere in Ireland. The husband suffers a stroke and is released from hospital under special surveillance/study made by a young American doctor whose specialty is neuro-surgery. The young wife has difficult time adjusting to a new life with a husband who seems like a child now, a very young daughter who seeks love and attention, a teenage son who has problems of his own, less than understanding in-laws, and a handsome yet very distant and shy stranger living with them whose responsibility is to teach the handicapped husband speak and live again...

I don't know what the title means or what it stands for. To me this film is about making the right choices while facing the difficulties of life. The story is very realistic and bittersweet. The ending is deep. The emotions portrayed by the actors highly believable. This is a first class European melodramatic-comedy.

You'll want to watch it again

I was blown away by Will Forte's (of SNL fame) acting ability in an emotional drama. I watched it a couple of years ago and had to watch it again just recently. I most definitely recommend it.

Elderly Father bought this even with parental controls engaged

Another purchase and order that shouldn't have been able to happen. Again my elderly father ordered this without consent also with all my parental controls in place. I am right now looking for a third order I have to cancel before the free trial is up. This is getting ridiculous.

Great sensitve drama!!
Verified purchase
Contrary to the write up on this movie, it is not a comedy! It was a well done ,sensitive drama about navigating relationship changes as a result of medical issues with a brain injury. Acting was great, and the script was well written.
