This film is probably one people generally haven't heard too much about - but it is really is one to watch. Its portrayal of what can happen when someone dies and secrets are revealed (which, believe me happens - having lived this - the same thing actually happened to my father as happened in this film) is accurate and the emotions shown are superbly acted. Chris Pine is an actor who shows he can act - the complex feelings of dealing with loss and the disappointment in his deceased father, and then the discovery of a second family his father had, and the discovery his mother knew, whilst dealing with his own problems, is alot to show on screen, but Chris Pine pulls it off. Elizabeth Banks as the "sister" is also excellent as is the young man who plays the "nephew". Its a journey of discovery - of self, and others who you thought you knew - and of those who come into your life in the most bizarre, and sometimes, most distresssing way.
