0.5 out of 10 Disappointing
Valeria from Cork, 08 Aug 2010
Characters relationships are inconsistent. Poor development of the plot. Hated the fishing 'technique'. The best bit is the title, until you discover what they make of them, disgusting. I expected something a little deeper and more poetic. A wasted rental, just glad I did not buy it.

2.5 out of 10 Fireflies in the Grden
margaret from Kilkenny, 30 Oct 2010
Very dissappointing, i am a big fan of Julia Roberts , part of the reason i rented this film is cos she was in it, not one of her best films and she dies early enough in it, Ryan Reynolds is the only good thing about this film, poor script writing and no real substance to it.

1 out of 10 Seriously Depressing
Lyn from Cork, 21 Apr 2010
Despite a great cast this has little to recommend it at all. My idea of purgatory in a film.

What's it about....
In this haunting family drama of recrimination and reconciliation, Lisa Waechter is at the center of the story playing a beleaguered family matriarch who has subordinated her needs and desires to those of her family, particularly her cold, demanding husband. Lisa's sudden death brings her entire clan together and triggers a series of flashbacks that reveal how the seeds of today's discontent were planted years earlier. Juxtaposing past and present in a fluid, lyrical, and...
