Strenuously exudes compassion for its protagonist but the style is voyeuristically unilluminating, the finale hard to forgive.
Cast is strong. I assume good intents. But from the dogged lingering on Lara's body to the hyperbolic end, what's preached is not practiced.
Convergence of physical ordeals seems novel, as does tricky father-daughter duet, but both go under-explored. More and more insulting clichés.
