Five days in the life of an American couple immediately following the accidental death of their child. An every day story of tragedy, loss, acceptance, hope and renewal. 'Morning' follows the divergent paths of Mark (Leland Orser) and Alice Munroe (Jeanne Tripplehorn) as they circle each other in a heart-breaking pas-de-deux of grief before finally coming to grips with their shared loss.Written by
When Mark splatters shaving cream on the mirror, it then cuts to Alice trying to call on the phone. Then it goes back to Mark. The dispersement and amount of shaving cream on the mirror has changed. See more »
The measured pace and elegant imagery of Leland Orser's initial effort as a director, combine with wrenchingly and intensely real acting to lead the viewer/participant through a journey into a hellish place.
In ways, it reminds me of what David Lynch attempted to do in "Inland Empire" but is, in my opinion, a far more successful effort.
Jeanne Tripplehorn's acting is exceptional, as is Orser's and that of Laura Linney.
The stillness and pace of the film elegantly match the pace and emotional return of the lead characters from the edge of death, wherein the surviving parents are tempted to be reunited with their dead child.
Morning (Mourning) is a truly stunning film.
