Dellal gets respectable performances all around ... but they can't elevate "Angels Crest" ... beyond its one obvious and depressing note ...

This tragic story about the accidental death of a child raises a lot of issues about parenting, responsibility, guilt, blame and remorse. These issues have broader implications for society as a whole, far beyond this specific example.

Despite several solid performances, the characters are too hazily sketched and too loosely linked to form a meaningful chain.
