What a delightful find. The beautiful Rosamund Pike, David Tennant, and three fabulous child actors in a totally wacky family trip to Scotland to see an ailing grandparent. The excellent script (with witty dialogue and character bits) takes some strange and unexpected turns. I loved this film. And I love dialogue that makes me fill in the blanks. E.g.:

Jess: Then the policemen comes.
Mom: That was just a misunderstanding, sweetheart.
Dad: Sometimes when grown-ups discuss things very loudly, people will get the wrong ideas
Mickey: He let me play with his taser.
Dad: Well, he didn’t let ya.
Mickey: He didn’t say I couldn’t.
Jess: Does electricity feel nice, daddy?
Dad: No, not nice.
