What a Disappointment - and doesn't Jake G ever talk??!
I really wanted to see this movie, based on the trailers I had seen. I love drama, plus Susan Sarandon and Dustin Hoffman are great actors. Well, I was sorely disappointed. There was not enough story development, plus I couldn't care about any of the actors. And Jake Gyllenhaal - he was the worst! He wandered through the movie not saying much of anything. Just a smirk on his face. He looked like an idiot! How could anyone have been engaged to such a boring, non-communicative young man?? I give it a 1 out of 10.
