Reta Winters has many reasons to be happy. Then, suddenly, all the quiet satisfactions of her well-lived life disappear in a moment: her eldest daughter Norah inexplicably drops out of college and is found on a Toronto street corner, pan-handling and refusing to speak, with a cardboard sign reading GOODNESS around her neck.
All my life, I've heard of people speak of finding themselves in acute pain, bankrupt in spirit and body, but I've never understood what they meant. To lose. To have lost. I believe these visitations of darkness last only a few minutes or hours, and that these saddened people, in-between bouts, are occupied, because we all are, with the useful monotony of happiness.

Well, I am not sure I understood what it is exactly that the director was trying to say in this film. You can feel there is a message there. After all, that "goodness" sign is right in the middle of the most of it. But I am not quite sure what that message was meant to be. The film does touch on quite a few topics like the homelessness, the fragility of happiness, etc. But all of that did not quite all get together. The family drama part and the acting was great, you can certainly feel the confusion and the despair of them so wanting to help and not understanding how. But then, when the explanation came at the end, I'd say I felt no less confused on what "goodness" has to do with all that and what the girl (and the director) wanted to say. Anyway, it certainly maid me want to read the book to fill in all the gaps.
