A light, sometimes humorous poke at children's difficulty seeing their parents as multi-faceted people.

I did not warm to the character of Jen, I found her abrasive and wooden. Her brother Kyle had more subtlety and depth but I found the plot turgid and couldn't feel any sibling connection.

Contemporary with interesting topics (parent's death, sibling relations, secrets, AA), but felt superficial--- like collected highlights from a weekend with friends.

Well done! I'm caucasian. But this movie and acting put me in the shoes of an Asian American. I could feel the awkwardness they felt.

Thank you for this movie! I treasure this! For many reasons: the authenticity of differing qualities of intimacy, the natural course of healing and progress, and the renewed spiritual sense of our immediate legacies in this era of changing structures.

Amazing. I loved this start to finish. Feels so real, interpersonal, and natural. As an Asian American I have a deep appreciation for this film.

When I lost my mom to cancer, I was devastated with grief. I couldn't imagine anything
worse than a child losing his mother...until I looked up and realized that it wasn’t all
about me. My stepfather had lost his wife. My aunts and uncles had lost their sister.
