Edward Furlong, somehow always manages to star in some good films and that probably is due to the fact that he chooses scripts in which he is something of a problem child or a social outcast. Anyway he always is a child that is far from normal and mostly a child out of luck. In T2 his mum is in the loony bin, in American History X he plays a full blown neo nazi, in this one he is wanted for murder. I could go on like this, but I do not want to bore you. Anyway the cast kind of speaks for itself, Liam Neeson, Meryl Streep plus Furlong, who is always good as the problem child' or the outcast or the strange one'. The names imply what this film is and fortunately not only they deliver a good performance, but so do all other actors and the director and on top of that the script is good too. No fast paced thriller this is though it is more or less of a simple crime movie that is somehow touchy (no not a drama). I enjoyed it and you might want to check it out too if you like these kind of movies, or as I maybe only because I like almost all of Furlong's movie I have seen.
