Really good performances, all-star cast. I can see how the movie would be a lot more impactful in its time, with the stigma of therapy that used to exist. Still, it holds up, worth a watch.

Such an amazing study in human nature and traumatic events. Probably one of the best acted, directed, and written films concerning many of these topics like suicide, survivor's guilt, and family dynamics.
