deep character development
3 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is very helpful in understanding people, why we all are the way we are. Each character is extremely well acted and leaves the viewer understanding them, and feeling deeply for them. As the film progresses, we are moving with them in their situations,and begin to understand why we all do things that seem to be just not the way we thought they would go. The scenery and setting all tell the story beautifully, and the ending is brought together perfectly to leave us with a feeling of everything can be whatever we can make it to be. Sadness, guilt, relief, all the feelings we all experience every day. All brought together wonderfully in this great film. This is one of those films that makes us remember what it was like to be a child, what we became as adults, as we learned to judge ourselves and others, how it is to see loved ones hurt and to feel loss. I was greatly surprised by everyone in this film, because I initially watched it because I admire Juliette Lewis, and she is tremendous in this film, but everyone else matches her. This is one of those films that stays with you, and makes you want to watch it over and over.
