A little disapointing. It didn't really have anything interesting to say about anything. The acting was good, the characters have potential but never really blossom into threedimensional characters. Still a decent story with good actors and very atmospheric through nice cinematography.
Pretty decent up until the halfway point where the plot develops into something else. From there on I found all the characters unrealistic in their reactions and behaviour.
Also, the little girl acts horrible, as does the older brother.
