The best movie I've ever seen!
3 March 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a must-see for Sam Waterston fans, if for no other reason than he is in every scene. This film, more than any other, shows the range of Sam's acting ability--from confidence to despair, from determination to exhaustion. The theme of the film is man helping man, which well reflects what Mr. Waterston attempts to do in real life.
