Beautifully touching moving, deep and true performances

What a surprisingly lovely movie. It touches on so many issues—class, domestic violence, high school mean girls (sometimes with a golden heart), but it is mostly about love and family. Given and chosen, with lines unimportantly unknown. The performances reel you into the the lives of a maybe-not-as-confident-as-she-radiates young woman whose life is literally torn apart, and of a man on the edge of despair brought back to life by purpose and love. Barbara Williams, as the (mostly) sloshed Nana, is especially poignant as a grief-stricken mother who flashes both kindness and toughness to her granddaughter, never letting us see anything but the love underneath.
