"Sweet" Indeed
20 May 1999 | by (Seattle, WA USA) – See all my reviews

This was a selection in the Seattle Int'l Film Festival this year. A parallel to 'Sling Blade' can obviously be drawn, but Brendan Gleeson's excellent performance as the wide-eyed, lumbering Sweety and a not-entirely-expected ending make up for remaining deficiencies. A touching film.
