  • A heartbreaking film that speaks to the lifelong aftershocks of war, and to the powerful bonds of family and of love. show more

  • Irish director Jim Sheridan, who has made his films in America in recent years, now delivers an American remake that hues closely to the original but loses some of its true grit. show more

  • This becomes Tobey Maguire's film to dominate, and I've never seen these dark depths in him before. Actors possess a great gift to surprise us, if they find the right material in their hands. show more

    Acting was awesome, if you like action, horror, comedy and not in to tear-jerker movies ********** this one. If you want to feel touchy feely and like emotional movies, this one is for you.

    This was one of those well acted movies that you are glad you watched it, but you don't care to watch again. Just too disturbing. Worth a first look!
