What a wonderful movie!
23 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is without any doubt the best movie I've ever seen! Beau Bridges and Bruce Davison are outstanding and convincing in their leading roles (I especially liked Davison's performance), so is the supporting cast.

Also, the script is excellent. -The dialogue between Michael Millerton and his wife ("Bill doesn't want my help....") is among the best I've ever listened to. It really gives you food for thought - as does the plot in general.

There's no question about it: "Hidden in America" is a poignant and a powerfully moving story about courage, sacrifice and friendship. You really shouldn't miss this one! It's more than worth watching!
