The storyline is incredible, and the pace with which it's told is simply perfect. The cinematography by Matthew Libatique and the music by Ryeland Allison fit perfectly and complement one another.
I found myself hooked from the very first minute and stayed hooked till the very last.
The cast is incredible; Leo Burmester is absolutely incredible, very intense and heart-touching.
But the one I've enjoyed most in this movie is Scott Caan. I am a huge fan of his, but I don't think I've ever seen him better than here. He's really carrying the whole story by himself, an absolutely believable and realistic performance. His pain and brokenness translate to the viewer, they are absolutely palpable.
Definitely a must-see, a true gem of movie making
