This marvelous film somehow escaped my movie radar until now. I am sure it was not a "blockbuster", but I have always been a fan of independent, foreign, ensemble films without all the special effects and big stars. This is a great study on moral decisions / responsibility and the specialness of small, quiet lives. What continues to be timely is the lack of value of individual lives within corporations. I highly recommend this film Kristi & Abby Tabby

A film about truth-telling. The consequences of two separate but related incidents In West Virginia coal country are interwoven with considerable skill into a tight but spare narrative. Recommended.

The difference between a movie and a film is vast.

Furious 7 is a movie.
Little Accidents is a film.

Film explores the human condition, provokes emotion, engages the thought process. The writing and direction are superb, and the acting--masterful.

A bit slow but overall not a bad movie. I would say that it is slightly above average.

Aug 17, 2015: Concur fully with the DVD cover: The truth is rarely pure and never simple. “Captivating and intense from start to finish." Don’t miss it.

This is my first and last Sara Colangelo film. I supposed she could win an award in some vague artsy category, but despite a timely topic, good acting (often blunted by her direction) and a compelling story, she managed to turn this into a moody, anti-dramatic, slow art piece. The cinematography was great, just used poorly--overdone and too long pieces to set the mood--but we were already pretty sure it was a sad movie since 9 miners died and then a 15 year old dies, and one 13 year old carries both burdens (dead father and murderer) along with trying to help his drunk mother and Downs syndrome little brother. Could have been SO good!

Art house film. Very well done. A character study and a coming-of-age film for the boy and also the adults.

Slow moving film with no substance. Considering the subject, you would think you would care about at least one of the characters. You do not. A rating of 2 stars is generous.

A lousy story that becomes creepy despite a few good performances. The setup is the result of a very stupid decision. Bad karma permeates the story from that point on.

This movie was disjointed and dull. The characters were flat and uninteresting.

A miner: We're waiting to hear what you're gonna say … You ain't gonna put us out of work, are you? You know we're a dying breed.

Amos: I just remember … I remember being carried. Carried up, and seeing that light again. Like the air came back into me, like … breathe easy again. (All in town and the audiences were able to breathe easy again after thee final couple of scenes.)
