It is a good movie. I only gave it three stars because I really got tired of the grieving mother.
The film is about how a fatal accident forever changes the lives of three families. It is a story about the search for forgiveness and redemption. It is also a story about how some people let tragedy destroy themselves and those who love them.
There is an unforgiving grieving mother; a forgotten surviving son; a teenager who made a fatal mistake trying to impress his not-so-perfect best friend; a lonely stepmother; a narcissistic father who cannot connect with his son or new wife; a depressed college professor who no longer has anything in common with his wife and who hates his job; a mentally ill man who is struggling with his own demons; and the girlfriend of the deceased who has already moved on.
The actor who played the man with agoraphobia and other mental illnesses did a superb job.
The tags "transsexual" and "Jessica Lange" have nothing to do with this movie.
