The film has a decent acting, but the pacing and the connection between the two storylines weak at best. The first 30 minutes or so were pretty good and then things go drastically and I started to lose the investment / interest in the character. Plot just kind of drips with no real direction, it feels like the writers got kind of lost in the story. I think it was meant to be a film about how our actions affect others, and possibly on the role / father's legacy, but I did not reach significance. I was really bored at the end and considered walking out (which is saying something b / c it's rare I do not finish the movie). These movies are the ingredients that could potentially be a solid film, but it just did not happen.
