Some bright spots
18 March 2014 | by (San Francisco, Ca.) – See all my reviews

It takes a while to build some steam, but there are bright spots. The story doesn't make a great deal of sense, but the setting is beautiful and the story unfolds in an intimate way that got me invested in Sam Rockwell's character. Ray Liotta is a plus and Ron Heneghan is excellent as the police officer. Rockwell and Heneghan in the school classroom is a marvelous piece of writing and acting, perhaps the movie's best moment. Ken Howard adds some heft as the father-in-law, but Michele Monaghan is disappointing as Rockwell's wife. Her character is shallow and she never grabs the audience one way or the other. I found Jane Fonda's narration to be choppy, but Sam Rockwell is engaging and inspiring. Definitely worth seeing.
