Here is what Jackie Bensley, of Phoenix said about it:

“My favorite scene is when they are on the camping trip. It is there that the father begins to actually connect with his children. He shares some part of himself with them and they feel that connection and in turn begin to open up to him. They all have a better appreciation of we each other. Also the scene where Sarah is talking to Gabe in his hospital bed… As she explains to him what she thinks his sons need from him. A very powerful moment. My favorite character would have to be the family unit as a whole. They were so perfectly imperfect. They were each trying so hard to do what was right. The only problem they each had a different idea of what is right for them. As most normal families do especially in today’s world when everyone is in their own little world. But then they come together when it really matters. Family. I liked the film because it was so thoughtful. While watching you really had a connection to it. I always know whrn I come out of a film if b I had a connection with it… If it made me feel something good… And this one did jist that. The casting was great. I don’t think I have ever seen Kate Hudson in an indie film before. I was a little curious about this when I first saw the trailer. But she pulled it off with flying colors. Impressive. If you mean effects by the interspersed kind of flashbacks with the father being in some video game they played as kids, I understand what he was trying to do, but I think it was unnecessary and kind of detracted from the film. The film would have been just as good if not better without them. We really didn’t need to know that both brothers escaped their childhood through video games. And were still escaping reality through acting and role playing at comi-con conventions. We didn’t really need that. And as for the music. I don’t really think it added to the film… Or took away from it, it was just there as if it needed to be there because that is what you have in a film. It was a minor character in the scheme of things.”
