I found this film to be one of the most heartwarming,genuine,thrilling and unforgettable ones I'd ever seen.Its simple brilliance is astounding.Robert Duvall gives one of his ten best performances ever as the charming and aging,but maverick drifter who discovers an oil field on the property of the most unlikely to get rich people.Aidan Quinn and Frances Fisher are also marvellous.Clint Eastwood produced this feature and I think it just shows his ability to choose the right projects,an ability he has always had.
If you can't enjoy this,then it means you are one of those who have to have blood and guts,fast cars and hot chicks and action to enjoy yourself.And Iam not of that kind,thank god.All in all,this is the loveliest picture since "Its a wonderful life".Just pay attention and be patient and Iam sure you'll discover its true value.I give this film 10 out of 10!
