Review :

The direction of the film along with the acting was simply world class. It’s an emotional roller-coaster. Yes it is slow, yes it gets a little boring, but while you watch the movie you’re always taking in the story line and this movie does make up for the last 30 minutes when the puzzle is put together and the full plot is revealed.

I think this movie is actually better than The Pursuit of Happiness which you should know was also a great emotional film. Will Smith, Rosario Dawson, Woody Harrelson, Michael Ealy and Barry Pepper all deserve awards with there 10 out of 10 performances. This movie, for me, is a must see. I am still taking in the film because it really blew me away.

If this movie doesn’t touch every sentimental nerve in your body reaching the core of your soul, you are not human. This movie will touch your heart in places you never knew existed. Each of us has seen movies that reach deep within and cause a light tear to seep out of the corner of our eyes that we quickly wipe it away and hope no one saw. You will indeed be seen crying on this one; you will need a box of tissues. I do not know how or what the self critics are seeing, but I don’t think it’s the same movie I just finished watching. Yes it’s a little slow, but it’s real.

This is a human in tune with what he wants and doesn’t let anything stop him from completing what he started. It’s a Shakespeare tragedy in today’s society. A movie you should definitely see. This is a very sad movie but it holds a great message to the world. Definitely buying it!
