What Remains of Edith Finch is heartbreakingly sweet. Its stories, though grim, are enchanting. Even knowing that each story would end with a certain unhappiness, I was happy to have experienced it -- because as What Remains of Edith Finch so brilliantly manages to convey through its nearly two hours of storytelling is that life isn't about the ends; it's about the moments that got us there.
