Will Patton is worth a watch
24 September 2001 | by (Farmington, ME) – See all my reviews

Ok, This is not a great movie. It's not even a good movie. Quirky, slow, lackluster and uneven. However, there is a reason why Will Patton won best actor award at the Newport Film Festival for his portrayal of Sean. He did an incredible job as this slightly crazy character who is sane enough to know something is very wrong with him. It is worth seeing this movie just to take a gander at Patton's performance.
