A very well acted movie, good plot.
Joaquin Phoenix could have done a better job. He sometimes felt fake. Aside from this, however, Jennifer Connelly and Mark Ruffalo shine. The movie was predictable, and there wasn't a happy moment in the whole film.
great cast, great connecticut locations...but mostly a gloomy mood and quite predicable.
Great cast... their Oscar performances will live with you. Structure just a bit too facile, but this movie and cast deserve better reviews.
The script gives all actors a great range with which to work and all rise to the occasion carrying the audience into their drastic emotional web.
