realistic and true to life
19 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually don't like historical dramas but this one is pretty good. The story is very interesting, as well as unpredictable. The best thing about this movie are the actors and characters.

Blythe Danner should have won an award for her performance! She was truly convincing as a woman who tried to put on a strong face for her family, but was falling apart inside. Joe Mantegna was persuasive as her loving and loyal husband. David Lascher, one of my favorite actors, turns in a typically appealing performance as the rebellious and troubled son. As usual, Kevin Zegers doesn't hold up his end of the film. There's a reason why he did those "Air Bud" movies! Still, he was good as the naive, innocent little boy.

The movie is very slow paced though. And again, I'm just not into historical dramas. But other than that, the movie is well worth watching.

My vote is 7/10.
