A film brought to us by the producers of Little Miss Sunshine and that is where the similarity ends and the oxymoron takes hold. With gentle light and infrequent black humour – it is not quite what the label says.
Not surprising really as suicide is rarely funny or is it? One of my favourite lines comes at the beginning of the film; asking to look at a gun in the local sports shop a customer blows himself away. The accompanying fallout instigates the comment 'He's reached Fishing' from an observant member of staff in the distance.
This is not to trivialise the message of the film, which centres round the lives of two sisters Rose and Norah.
I mean, who does clean up after a suicide, forensics having gone home for tea?
Well worth a watch – just go with an open mind.
