Hope ★★★★

Pretty good stuff, one of those slick, dark accounts of lifes falling apart and society reacting to it. A Girl Missing came to mind, which i really liked. This isn't as good, but the question at the center, which 望み is right or wrong, what outcome to wish for, felt pretty real and the leads carried it convincingly. Only thing i wasn't quite sure about was, slight spoiler, how the tone mellowed quite a bit towards the end. Still, the family dynamic was good and depressingly recognizable.
