Anyone seen it?

Ex wife of man who has caused the death of their children

Goes to his brothers funeral after years of no contact, heavily pregnant?

Will only make sense if you have seen it

Seems an awful / cruel / unlikely thing to do, no?

Yeah I've seen it. I can't remember it exactly, but I did sympathise with the characters (for example, the man who 'caused' the death of his kids - I don't really think he caused it. It was a really tragic accident more than anything, I think).

I thought it was brilliant and moving. Sat with me for a while.

Sometimes you don't recover from a terrible grief; time was not a healer for him. It was a tragic accident.

I've seen it. Really sympathised with them both, she was trying to build a life and he was really struggling but both paralysed by grief. Really good film. If I remember correctly she was also close to his brother so seems fair for her to come and pay respects.
