Beau Bridges has often been overshadowed by his father and brother, but he is a great actor in his own right and proves it in this riveting film. Joan Allen is also great as Sarah Brady. She holds a special place in my heart because she was in Manhunter one of my favorite films. This is a hard film to watch at times because it gets very depressing but it is true to life. I also thought the guy who played Reagan was really funny. He plays him like he is a total dolt.
