Imaginary Heroes

I watched this Saturday night and forgot to review it. It reminded me strongly of a similar film probably 20 years ago, oh, I remembered enough to google: Ordinary People. In Imaginary Heroes the older son kills himself, the father feels guilty, the mother is bitter, the daughter is barely on screen, and the younger son feels lost. It's not a bad movie, but I saw pretty much everything coming. The intention of the film was to show not only the loss and recovery, but how this kind of sorrow can bring secrets out and then affect the recovery.
