This movie evokes strong emotion. The characters felt real, and the actors did an excellent job portraying these characters in what came across as evocative of genuine emotion and stories. The facial expressions of each of the actors were very poignant; never overwrought. For me, the movie was crafted in a way that can make you feel like you are there with these individuals, feeling the emotion of their stories, their interactions, the ups and downs. If you are looking for a movie that is about people and their emotions (positive and negative), then this is a movie to check out. Although two of the stories in this are particularly tragic (with some powerful acting that encapsulates some raw emotion in reaction to the situations), there are hopeful notes throughout the end of the movie as the main characters make amends and find their path forward together. It is about friendship, love, loss, forgiveness in understanding, and hope.
