Beautifully Acted--Portrayal of a Painful Life
16 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why anyone would give this film a low rating is a mystery to me. Just a sign of how dummied down our American public really has become. Such low brow reviewers are probably the kind of people who run with scissors! I mean, they are some real life window lickers! This film is excellent. It's wholly realistic story telling. It's character driven and the dialogue is well crafted. It's as if you are watching a real person live a real life instead of a movie. It has one of the best performances I've ever seen. Stuart Bennett pulled of the role of a lifetime. The supporting cast is superb, as well.

What? You don't recognize the names? One must realize that some of the best talent comes from ordinary people without a giant Hollywood resume. Turn your brains on and enjoy this masterpiece.
