    Another preachy, overacted message film that owes its out-of-time structure to "21 Grams" and "Babel," except writer-director Charles Oliver uses the idea of restorative justice. show more

    Well, you can't fault the actors. That must mean it's the fault of the writer and director. Take is a monotonous slog through dirgeland, telling a story that seems strung out beyond all reason, with flashbacks upon flashbacks delaying interminably the underwhelming climax. show more

    This was such a great movie!!!! I went to see it in NY last weekend, and it was so moving. I loved how the movie dealt with the issues of forgiveness and restoritive justice. Overall, AMAZING movie, powerful, and moving!!!
