Chris Cooper Fans-Don't Miss It
5 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Chris Cooper has really emerged recently as a major star, what with his Force of Nature performance in `Sea Biscuit' and his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in `Adaptation'. But his talent was evident long before all this belated recognition, and this little movie is a one place to enjoy it. Yes, this is a TV movie, but beside the obvious asset of Chris Cooper in the lead role, it has more going for it. Good supporting performances from Mare Winningham and Lloyd Bridges. Above average camera work, and locations that feel like a real town with authentic people, help create an environment worthy of these actors. As for Chris, he turns in his trademark understated performance. Like all great film actors he makes it look so easy.
