The film had a decent acting, but the pacing and the connection between the two story lines are weak at best. The first 30 minutes or so were pretty good, and then things changed dramatically and I started losing the investment / interest in the character. The plot just kind of penetration with no real direction, it feels like the writers are kind of lost in their own story. I think it should be a movie about how our actions affect others, and perhaps for paper / legacy of the father, but did not reach any kind of worries me. I got really bored towards the end and consider walking out (which is saying something b / c it's rare for me not to finish the movie). The movie had all the elements that can be a solid film, but it just does not make it happen.
