Bleak, moving drama
7 February 2000 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at a sneak preview in Cleveland, and was very moved by it. The journey of Ray, who loses his job and agonizes over finding another, was compelling and heartbreaking; his family's reaction to his stress and his wife's frustrated love for him are achingly portrayed. Excellent work for first-time feature director Brown.
