Storyline

When his mother dies, Bob not only inherits her house, but also the custody of his younger brother, who suffers from schizophrenia and epilepsy. At the age of 21, Bob promised to look after his brother. Although he has barely seen him in the many years since then and strives against the commitment, he doesn't dare to put him in a home either.

Garner and Woods were nice to everyone watching
5 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

My wife and I were extras for a few scenes. I got to be behind the scenes and spend a lot of time watching two famous Hollywood Actors. I was pleased to see them posing for pictures and signing autographs to the people gathered watching the filming. They could have ran into their private trailers, but waited around all 14 hrs of each day. Garner had an obvious bad cold, but did not try to go indoors during delays. The only negative observation was that both Garner and Woods smoked non-stop during delays. I've seen them do it in numerous movies since then, actually in the movies...I had never thought about it prior to this. They both deserved the Emmy they each won. The movie was a very good movie, making you squirm in your seats, wondering what Woods character would do next. Thanks guys
