Treading Water

I wasn't sure what to expect when I watched this movie, and it was by no means the best movie ever, or containing new information that can't be found in other movies.  However, the thing I loved about it was the atmosphere and the dynamics between Casey and Alex, the two main characters.

The premise of the story is Casey is from a well-to-do family and her mother does not approve of her being a lesbian.  Consequently, Mom refuses to meet her partner Alex.  The movie takes place over Christmas, so there is a visitor, Carmen, who adds interest, as well as interesting goings on from Casey's brothers. 

This is the sort of movie I would be apt to watch over and over, just for the feeling of belonging and comfort that Casey and Alex have.  I also like the water, and the seaside landscapes.
