The cast and the setting of this movie was enough for me. When you add the plot and sub-stories it turns into an extremely well made and thought out movie. I enjoyed every minute and can't express in words the magnificent job the cast did. I really enjoyed the interaction between Rowena and Judge Finch. You could tell from the beginning there was quite a past between the two. I can't find any fault in Decoration Day. It's amazing how with the correct script and cast, that violence, profanity, and sex would seem out of place. The sub-plots were sufficient to keep the viewer guessing and the story of Billy and Loreen fit in perfectly. I would encourage everyone to see this to see what a real story and great actors can do when they are combined
