the sunchasers
19 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. It is a profoundly deep and moving. This is a film that I don't get tired of watching. It touches the cores of your heart. The story involved a dying man (played by Seda) who kidnaps a self absorbed doctor (played by Harrelson)and along the way they both go through this journey of self discovery. I get emotional toward the end of this film and I think that it is beautifully acted and not well filmed, but sometimes you have to look pass that and see the overall message of the film, which the director was able to put forth. I highly recommend this film. I think this is one Harrelson best film that I have seen him in and Jon Seda shows that he has potential to be a great actor due to his fine acting in this film.
