Movie Review: The Rest of Us 2019
The Rest of Us is a heartfelt drama that explores the complexities of mother-daughter relationships, grief, and forgiveness. The movie follows two women – Cami (Heather Graham) and Rachel (Jodi Balfour) – who are brought together by the death of Craig (Luke Camilleri), Cami’s ex-husband and Rachel’s father.
What makes this film stand out is its realistic portrayal of the characters’ emotions. Heather Graham delivers a remarkable performance as a mother trying to make amends with her estranged daughter while also struggling to come to terms with her ex-husband’s death. Jodi Balfour also shines as the conflicted daughter who is dealing with her own feelings of loss and resentment towards her mother.
The pacing of the film may feel slow at times, but it adds to the overall tone of melancholy that permeates throughout. Director Aisling Chin-Yee does an excellent job in capturing the small moments that make up life – from cooking dinner together to sharing memories about loved ones.
Overall, The Rest of Us is an emotional journey into grief and how it can bring people closer together or tear them apart. It’s a poignant reminder that we’re all just doing our best in this world full of unexpected twists and turns.
