Intelligent dramaBy a customer from Surrey, UK , 25 Jul 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]As usual, Sigourney Weaver gives a very convincing and entertaining performance in this intelligent drama.
This is a portrait of a family in quiet disarray, living with a tragic recent event and trying to overcome past problems.
It can seem like it is aimless at times, but is always watchable. The payoff is in the last 30 minutes or so, which completes the film in a satisfying way.
If you like an intelligent drama with good performances and concvincing characters then this is worth a watch.
There are plenty of shoddily made dramas that really ARE tedious - but this isn't one of them!

Good film well actedBy a customer from Alton , 29 Jan 2009Compelling film with a very good twist at the end.
Imaginary American Beauties in an Ice StormBy Oliver Redfern from London, England , 28 Oct 2008There's a good movie struggling to burst out of this American Beauty/The Ice Storm rip off. A typical American middle-class family is torn apart when the middle son - a popular swimmer primed for the big time - kills himself. The youngest boy, used to being ignored and treated like nothing, suddenly becomes the focus of the father's anger and the mother's grief. As he falls in with the next door neighbour's junkie son, secrets unravel and a lot of emotional scenes take place accompanied by sentimental piano pieces. There are gaping plot holes and character inconsistencies, and the darker (and more interesting) plot turns don't get explored. The end is a colossal cheese fest.
4 StarsBy 02bwillis (1 review) from London , 12 Jun 2008A really underestimated film. Saw it on TV and had to rent it again.
took one star away for its rubbish title and it is fairly slow moving, but one you must see.
Imaginary HeroesBy Gig (41 reviews) from London , 07 Feb 2008Surprisingly good movie considering it tackled dysfunctional family issues which could have made it maudlin but good script and acting made it watchable and engaging.
Heroes?By LR from Leeds , 25 Jan 2008Forgettable, but not unenjoyable.
