The Other One
For Ages 12 and Over
A teacher survives a school shooting and returns to her remote childhood home to care for her mother. As her mother’s dementia deepens and secrets come tumbling out, she discovers her entire life is a lie. Ultimately a story of acceptance and redemption, THE OTHER ONE is a beautiful and serene film haunted like each of us is- by the pasts that we embrace, hide from, lie about, and make peace with.
In today’s life we often hear the terrible news of shootings in schools, churches, malls and many other places but we never see the true affect that these horrific tragedies have on those victims that are innocently involved. Here is a movie that displays the emotional upheaval that one woman endures after a terrible school shooting that causes the loss of her husband. It also shows the reaction to a secret she is made aware of that pertains to her own family. Life can be cut short for many and recovery for those left behind is sometimes unbearable and difficult to understand so they ask the question as to why they were left behind to endure this pain.This is an interesting movie that has a mysterious side to it. It brings to light the hardships that happen due to these life-threatening situations. We are pleased to award our Family Approved Seal for ages 12 and over to this moving drama.
