Review by peanutduck
Contrived and laborious, A Sunbeam attempts to pull heartstrings with story of mother’s obsessive, guilt-ridden love for special needs son, but gets lost in overabundance of questions, issues, eye roll-worthy last-second revelations. Spiritless production plodded monotonously, as if burdened by subtext. Happy surprise: Kim Bogus’s performance as socially awkward psychologist.
