this is actually my favorite movie.
14 August 2000 | by (philadelphia, pa) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a more touching tale of a boy becoming a man, and it spans 2 decades to get from start to finish.

The full spectrum of actions dealt with are amazing, the loss of a father, the loss of a dream, the loss of a true love, the separation from all that was "holy" to this young man and his attempts to reclaim his life after years of avoiding everything real.

All this told with a backdrop that is flawless and accurate. (it takes place in Philadelphia, my hometown)

Truly a touching movie, and my favorite drama.
