A quite awful film, but at least an awful film arguably made for adults. It seems like the filmmakers and actors had no idea how to follow through on the premise, and while it tries to have a conventionally happy ending, it has already introduced such sour notes into the relationships that the resolution seems false. Kind of like some of the sly tricks Fritz Lang used to sneak in, but I don't think it's intentional
A dramedy made in the most generic way possible, with a basic storyline and progression, with its incursions into comic relief that sometimes work, but most of the times fall flat. However, it does have its glimpses of great acting, that make up for a few good scenes.
The only thing I took from this film was that Winona Ryder and Jennifer Connelly look very similar, I mean what was anyone who worked on this film thinking just the part about the Donner party dose that make any sense to anyone
