In the middle of an Australian summer, we meet three sisters. Nina is widowed with two young children. Anna is an aspiring actress unhappily married to a filmmaker. Christine is a med student who has yet to fully come to terms with her sexuality. When their mother Susan's breast cancer returns, the family is faced with the reality of their last Christmas together. As each daughter confronts personal change and growth, Susan guides them by revealing a secret of her own.

I could barely sit through this movie. Not only did I find it dull, but I detested two of the main characters for their bratty ego-centrism. By the time we got to the third daughter's story (the only daughter I liked), I was fed up with the movie.

Very well done indie with an amazing performance by Nicola Bartlett as the matriarch. Hopefully, this film gets the exposure it deserves.

Little Sparrows is a nice film about a woman suffering from a lethal illness having her last intimate converstion with each of her three daughers. Even though the film ends with her passing, the audience would feel some comfort. All three of her daughters would feel more confident in their future knowing they could move on with their lives.
