I din't expect much from this when I first started watching it. Sara Ball is far too cutesy almost like a teen. Meg Cashel is too riveting by far as the kooky but lovable sister, and Anderson Davies is far too handsome and clean cut to have any depth.
As the film progressed it leaked corny and oozed cheesy and yet the great dialogue and the intense chemistry between Ball and Anderson kept me watching.
The score was amazing because it did not overwhelm like most recent films, the story was about the people and what they had to say and not about loud music playing.
The direction and editing was excellent so the film played out smoothly and exactly as you'd expect it to, keeping a fast pace but without missing anything out.
At the end it actually moved me to tears by the sheer force and excellence of the acting in the final scenes.
All in all a beautiful film, beautifully done and left me with a beautiful feeling.
