Judy Davis is excellent in a double role as a straight-laced attorney investigating the years-old accidental drowning of her wilder, photographer mother (also Davis). Her snooping around into her mother’s personal life leads to finding out things she never knew out about her, including things she’s not sure she ever wanted to know. Davis couldn’t be more mesmerizing, and fans will enjoy getting two performances for the price of one, but the overall effect of the story is slight.
