This movies gives an interesting look into the world of someone with anixety. Watching the relationship of the mother son and then the tragic ending keeps the watcher engaged and wanting more. I think this film was made perfect for showing someone with anxiety.

Glad I finally got around to watching this one. Too bad the sound is a bit damaged here but it ...Read more

Based on my background and experiences, the film touched home and for me, not too entertaining but was heart wrenching. ...Read more
