Goofs

At about three minutes 30 seconds, the lady picked up the remote control from the top of the TV and turned the TV on. Then she switched it to a news channel, but when the TV screen appeared on the screen to show the news, we can see a remote control is still on top of the TV. See more »

This Movie Is Drama/Mystery... Not Shoot 'em up bang, bang...
18 May 2001 | by (Providence, RI, USA) – See all my reviews

The Chemistry between Winger and Nolte is very dry. If you need a lot of blood, gun play and explosions then this movie is not for you. It unfolds in a tortured manner which I happen to enjoy. The people of this small town are not flashy or larger than life, They are ordinary and have settled into a predictable pattern. The importance of each character is presented to us in an unpredictable sequence which tends to keep the audience off balance and somewhat unsettled. Most of the interplay is understated- another feature which, in an era of grandiosity, is refreshing. If the viewer has the patience to allow the story to unfold the reward will be well worth the investment of time.
