Kevin Bacon at his best!!!
21 June 2009 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Where do you start with a gem like this. THE SCRIPT! It is brilliantly adapted by Langford Wilson from his own play of the same name. The story line centers around Kevin Bacons character, and his ample talent is on full display here. Kyra Sedgwick, Lindsay Crouse, and Tom Atkins are also strong. Thirteen year old Casey Afleck makes his screen debut. Everyone is wonderful in this personal little movie. But there is even more to like about this film than the actors; the music, set decoration (50's), the lighting, cinematography, everything. There is actually not one thing I didn't like about this movie. The biggest credit has to go to Langford Wilson's script, Jan Egleson's direction, and Kevin Bacon's deft acting. He carries this film in a 360 degree view of a summer he spent with his estranged father. It is touching and tense as you watch this head on collision happening in slow motion. The finale is powerful, and sad. See this brilliant work. You will be moved and impressed.
