Full of surprises .......
8 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Hard Choices" is a movie that is difficult to figure out, because it is anything but predictable. Characters that you already have stereotyped, suddenly shift gears with revelations you couldn't anticipate. Ultimately this is a movie about friendship, and unconditional giving. It is also well acted, with nice locations, and is full of surprises. If originality is high on your list of a movie's enjoyable criteria, then seek this one out. Watch for J.T. Walsh as a deputy, and John Sayles also makes an appearance. For such an unknown film, "Hard Choices" is one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, and I'm doing just that. ..... - MERK
