Great acting, serious drama
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this in a theater, only on a DVD, but I was very moved by the story and the performances. Without giving anything away, I can say it is the story of a soldier who comes back from Iraq. Dash Mihok (he was in The Thin Red Line - another really impressive performance as a soldier by him, I thought) plays the soldier and I think this movie is worth seeing for many reasons (like it's message for one), but his performance is one of the top reasons. I hope he can win some award for this. I have seen him in other films but I didn't recognize him at first and I thought (and so did my friend) that he was actually a vet, not an actor. The actor who plays his friend is also excellent, Spencer Clark, who has been in lots of films. You'll recognize his face. The story is well told and the film looks beautiful (which is nice and impressive for such a sad story), and I found many of the scenes very surprising and shocking. It is slow at the beginning, but their friendship is very sad and moving, and the film's message is very powerful and worth everyone seeing.
