    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Keane is played by Damian Lewis. Here he inhabits an edge of madness that Lodge Kerrigan understands with a fierce sympathy. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Lewis, from the TV series "Band of Brothers," gives a super performance, but the revelation here is young Breslin, who was in Garry Marshall's "Raising Helen" and M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs." show more

    Poignant human drama, centering on one one main player rather than on relationship dynamics. Well made and acted.
