Resonant, Slow, Indulgent, Cliched, Banal

See it if Despite its cogent theme of poor parenting, the actors try hard (to the best of their abilities) to breathe life into Lawder's wooden script

Don't see it if It's hard to discern if the actors are defeated by the cliches of the script or the script is further impaired by the inept performances
