    Couldn't last 1/4 way through the film, I tried, but it was sssooooooo booooorrrrrrring. David Duchovny should do ads for sleep aids, seriously. This is the type of film you'd expect to find on Lifetime, LMN, O2, Hallmark, etc. In other words, wherever you'd expect to find oldsters, shutins, nuns, and the like. I'm one of the fortunate ones that got out only a half hour in. Not. Reco. Mended.

  1. An unstable mix of a tearjerker, junkie-recovery story and odd-couple pairing. The film marks the American debut of Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier, whose European films show a strong affinity for stories of human frailties and of families unraveling.

    A live-wire performance by Benicio Del Toro sparks an otherwise morose study of loss, addiction and catharsis.
  3. No matter what panache Bier adds, Things We Lost is still a TV-scaled tear-duct drama about a beautiful woman who pushes past sadness in her House & Garden home.
