    Maybe not 4 stars but probably slightly better than 3. Strictly drama. Acting is fairly good, and story had weak spots. Rent, don't buy. It's not one you'll want to go back and watch again, ************* entertaining.

    thought it was a terrific movie.....sam rockwell was just great...the love these siblings had was unbelievable...what a great sister....we all should be so lucky...i wanted to find out how he made out after 18 years in prision & read of his sad death 6 months later.....heartbreaking!!!! but his life before prision was that he was a screw up, but the movie indicated how much he loved his daughter....sister/ his heart it did appear he was a loving man, was so sad that he was in prision for so long....DNA thank goodness for it now!!! I jope Betty Ann is doing well, what a great person, devoted nearly her whole life for her brother!!! Very touching, & quite the loving story....
