I would have liked to known more about the roots of the parents' pathology, but it really doesn't matter. The overarching message for me is the deeply devastating damage that sick parents visit upon their children. And so on, and so on, and so on.

They say that truth can be stranger than fiction. I'm not sure what the purpose was of putting the fish in the pool. Also, why did the dad keep hitting the children with equipment? It truly seems like a nightmare become a false reality in this movie.
