This film moves slowly and it's kind of a downer for the most part but by the end it redeems itself, kind of. It's got one of those popular ambiguous endings that independent filmmakers love so much these days. The two female leads do a swell job of showing us the longing their characters feel and they say more in their glances, silences, and sighs than their dialogue ever does. All in all it's a evocative period piece that's haunting, unsettling, and very well put together. It's not the sort of film I usually watch but I'm trying to clean out my Netflix instant queue and in the end, I'm glad I saw this one. I recommend it.
