During a weekend visit by the two adult sons, the outward calm of a middle-class family is thrown into turmoil when the mother, who suffers from clinical depression, announces her decision to go off her medication. “An elegant, economical and superbly acted mapping of psychological undercurrents and (not always explicit) family relations” (Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily).
