Hit and a Miss

I saw this film at festival last year. I can't place my finger on what it is that I really didn't like about it. Ultimately I couldn't feel sympathy for either of the main characters. It might be a moot point as I know other who really enjoyed it.
While Secret and Lies showed people facing the secrets of the past, this film seemed to gloss over aspects that have made this couple who they are. It's slow pace allows you time contemplate, but my contemplation really happened once I left the theatre.
