10 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie takes place in the near future, where a draft has been re-instated and three friends in New York find themselves faced with their own fears and beliefs as they deal with their call to serve. George a successful lawyer, Dixon a tough-as-nails cab driver, and Feller a writer with a host of insecurities, face their inner demons in the thirty days they are given to report to duty. I was lucky enough to see this movie at Tribeca, not once, but three times. I loved it more each time and got to enjoy all the little nuances I missed from previous viewings. New York was the perfect setting for this movie and the city is like another character in the film. This is a very character driven story and there is not one weak performance in the lot. Everyone is wonderful, with the stand-out performances being Ginnifer Goodwin as George's wife, Sofia Vassilieva in a small but effective part, and Elijah Wood who manages to be both hilarious and heartbreaking in one of his best roles to date. A touching a thought-provoking film, this one is not-to-miss.
