When Taryn, a Northern Irish runaway, finds herself in trouble in Ocean City, she seeks refuge with her aunt and uncle in Baltimore. But Kim and Bill have problems of their own: they're trying to handle the end of their marriage gracefully for the sake of their daughter Abby. A story of family revelations, people finding each other and letting each other go, looking for love where they've found it before and, when that doesn't work, figuring out where they might find it next.

Filmed in the natural style with much subtext. Definitely an adult movie made for the thoughtful and mature viewer. A talented musical family unpinned from itself and from society, completely under the sway of their own relationship troubles. Some very subtle Freudian dynamics at work between the characters. It was odd how the family had such intimate connections--and they are quite civil with each other--however were overwhelmed by the external power of their own difficulties. In this way it is quite different from The Squid and the Whale. It would be great to have a follow up on the lives of the children as they get older.

A portrait of several days in the lives of some average people; you learn about their problems but the movie ends with no solutions for any of them. So?
