A couple who loses their young son in a tragic car accident are unable to overcome the loss. Becca (Kidman)a and Howie (Eckhart) are still mourning the loss of their son, Danny, which starts affecting their personal lives and strains their relationship. Becca wants to give away all of Danny's belongings and attempts at erasing all the memories there ever was of him, much to the ire of Howie. Howie lives in Danny's memories and wants to have another child but Becca does not agree with him. Becca's loss starts affecting her relationship with her mother who compares Danny with Becca's brother who passed away due to a drug overdose. The movie primarily revolves around the strained relationship of a couple and how that starts affecting their personal relationship with people around them. The movie can get slow and heavy at times and may not be to the liking of all. If it is family drama that appeals to you, the movie is a fabulous watch. Kidman and Eckhart have a great on-screen chemistry going that gives you a more 'real world' feel.
Thumbs up: Fabulous performances
Thumbs down: May not appeal to all, a bit slow and heavy
