I've seen it, and, eh. I think I had my hopes too high, I had planned to buy it and make it a good comfort movie...not so much. It's worth renting but I was a bit diappointed.
In some ways,I think it's better for friends/family who have not lost a child to get *some* (a little) insight into our new worlds. I mean, there were some things I could totally relate to and had me nodding, but a lot of it not so much.
There were a few things that annoyed me a little, like bereaved mothers acting bat**** crazy. Though there are definitely moments when I have *felt* crazy, I haven't stalked anyone lately, etc. etc. etc. and I would venture a guess that most of us aren't out stalking people. So, I kind of had mixed feelings about it. I think it's worth a watch, and definitely expect to cry and there will be things you will relate to. But some of it just kinda annoyed me.
