loss

In fact, films can link in much the same way as books.

Recently I saw Imaginary Heroes and Red Road in quick succession. Both are about a family dealing with loss, in different ways. The former is about a nuclear family recovering from the suicide of the favourite son, the latter is about a woman mourning the death of her husband and child in a car accident.

Both are heavy with the absence of someone.

One has Sigourney Weaver in it, one doesn't.
