A quote from somebody watching the movie: "This movie is almost unbearable." It is so poorly done, it is almost a comedy. The child actors deliver their lines like they're first reading them. The adult actors are not much better. I don't think they practiced their lines and emotions before it was time to shoot. It was like watching a church or school play. The editing is so bad that you can tell when the children messed up their lines (twice). The dialog is very stale, made worse by the aforementioned horrible acting.
