Wonderful performances, absorbing story

on 12/24/2012

Each of the actors is excellent, especially Pantoliano. Harden is a solid actress but the script fails to capture the essence of her response to her disease. The film feels disjointed and inconsistent and has holes of undeveloped subplots and lines of thought that keep the movie grounded. But knowing that the story is true encourages the viewer to forgive the flaws and appreciate the tough subject matter that should help every viewer to better understand the effect of mental illness on a family.

Wonderful performances

In this film, Mary Marino (Marcia Gay Harden) has been afflicted with paranoid schizophrenia for nearly 2 years and her disease has affected her marriage to her working husband John (Joe Pantoliano in his best role to date) and her eleven year old son Chris (Devon Gearhart): John misses work to care for Mary and still pay for her mounting hospitalization and medical bills & Chris suffers abuse form his mocking school friends, frequently having to explain away his mother's erratic behavior.
