Deeply personal and courageous
28 November 2015 | by charlesclauserSee all my reviews

In "You See Me", producer/director Linda J. Brown first provides an inspiring account of her family coming to terms with the physical and emotional impact of caring for their father after he has a devastating stroke. As the film progresses, Brown weaves in accounts of her family history, and confronts previously unspoken truths about it that relate to the father's struggles with rehabilitation, and to each family member's reaction to his struggles. The result is a deeply personal and emotional account of a family not just enduring the challenges of a suffering parent, but also courageously confronting their past and making sense of it. The film is a must see in part for anyone who desires to openly and honestly examine their own life challenges, and how their family history plays a significant part in their response to those challenges.

Although dealing honesty with her family's history, Brown does not attempt to provide a clear reason for each difficult family theme that is represented. Family relationships can be dynamic and complicated, and the nature of them is even more pronounced when they exist within the context of physical illness. There are no easy answers as to why things are the way they are in a family, and this film honors that. The film does not allow the viewer to easily pass judgment on any one family member. In doing so, Brown gives the viewer the most powerful gift of all to everyone who struggles in family relationships - the gift of forgiveness.
