"It's a good life you have, as long as you don't weaken" speaks a character here before her own demise. But this is a film of the drug addled, the disappointed, the shut-ins; those who have weakened. Quite the depressing little calling card from director Hopkins who one can suppose/hope will have some interesting films in the near future. Good use of music especially the scenes set to Bach.
Amazing images and cast. Wow for cinematography. The film itself is extremely downbeat yet compelling and draws an interesting parallel between the over 80 lonely people and under 25 wasted youth. Seems very pessimistic, however never feels fake at all. very touching and unfortunately real. Imagine Kids UK small town heroin style..
