Gene Hackman plays a middle aged bar owner, whose wives gone missing and is presumed dead.But he refuses to accept that,so he lays in bed all day, ignoring the world around him.While watching old home movies of him and he's wife. I guess they want you to feel sorry for him,laying there while everything fall to pieces around him. But I just found him pathetic.He let down the people around him, while he lays in bed feeling sorry for himself. There are some subplots about a bridge getting built.But they never really explore that. The sad part is,that could have made the movie more interesting. But alas no,they continue with the boring gene hackman feeling sorry for him self story
