As the seasons change in a Connecticut town, two men of different age and backgrounds who work together outdoors for the local park system, share thoughts and feelings that gradually deepen into a relationship approaching father and son. Paul is just out of prison for armed robbery, assigned to work with Murph, a middle-aged vet whose grown son Bobby is dying. Paul is trying to control his temper and build a spiritual side based on reading. Murph is a down-to-earth Sancho Panza to Paul's more ethereal ideas. And Murphy seems to need forgiveness for mistakes as a dad. As Murphy's retirement approaches and winter sets in, the men talk and love blossoms. Written by
Liev Schreiber and Ned Beatty are two of the most under-rated actors in the business. Both perform brilliantly together on screen. Without them, this movie has its innocent beauty in the color green and the simple shots of everyday life in this small town of Connecticut. Beatty proves himself again to be one of America's best actors. Never making the big bucks like most of your "Top 40" stars in Hollywood, Beatty brings a classic tone to the movie that very few actors can do. Schreiber too, is one of the better actors of the new generation. The two of them together echo what good actors should be. A touching, simple, yet brilliant movie that deserves a large audience. Check it out!
