Storyline

A widow's forgiveness. A killer's remorse. Bond of Silence is the true life story of a shocking murder and the amazing bond that came from it. Katy and Bob live a perfect life in a small close knit town. He's a respected lawyer, a renowned tri-athlete. She just had twins. It is New Year's Eve. Teens converge on the house next door. Always the good neighbor, Bob goes to shut it down. A confrontation occurs. Then he's dead. No teen comes forward. The media pours in. Headlines scream. Katy hunts for answers. But no one talks. A bond of silence covers the town. The police do an undercover sting and someone's caught. Ryan, a popular kid, tries to be cool, but the burden of what he did that night is unbelievable. Ryan and his attorney want to plead not guilty, but then Katy and Ryan meet. Where Katy should be a grieving wife, she becomes a supportive mother. Rather than berating, she listens. Rather than accusing, she comforts. And Ryan tells her what happened. Step by step. When Ryan ... Written by anonymous

Compeling story, good cast, disappointing ending.
6 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I will reframe from writing a summary of the plot or a detailed commentary. I want to address both previous and very differing reviews.

I was engrossed while watching the movie and was eager to see the bond broken and for justice to prevail. I felt no sympathy for any of the kids including the sad sensitive remorseful boy who confessed. Underneath what you see is a violent sociopathic killer. True that violence is fueled by alcohol, but it is my opinion that drinking acts to unleash what is repressed.

This being said, forgiveness is a great,admirable and spiritual virtue. Living with resentment and anger is poison and forgiveness is the antidote. It is also a process. I wish that the crime was wrapped up sooner to explore how the widow was able to come to that place of forgiveness. Watching her smile compassionately at the perp as he passes her in handcuffs after just confessing to beating her husband to death was a big letdown and ruined the movie for me!
