This is the best movie I watched in 2015 and the only 5-star. I cried a little at the end, a cry of happiness for the characters made real through superb acting.

Slow moving but entrancing; beautifully done.

Life in the sand as the soul might see it--be prepared for unexpectedly shifting points of view and something eternal.
