Academy Award Candidate
6 December 2004 | by (Hopewell,New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This is whats frustrating about the academy award process in Hollywood...how Guy Hutchinson's performance could be overlooked..is astounding. This actor captures all of compassion and pity of the fool...that he is portraying. I guess because this was'nt a box office success...that sadly a good piece of work like this is overlooked again....just like Wayne in Genghis Khan and Nolte in the Hulk...we look at the revenue of a movie and not the quality. At times throughout this movie..... I just couldn't believe that it was actually a movie and not a reality show...thats how deeply this movie affected me and my family. Sometimes I think we as film goer's are more interested in the money spent on the film and not the overall movement in the bowels of depth that the actors are capable of accomplishing.
