The movie is much better the second time around.
25 April 2003 | by ahegerSee all my reviews

The first time I watched it seemed slow. I thought it was professionally done, and David Morse, as always, was solid.

The second time around it was simply moving. It's worth the effort to slow yourself down, and empathize with David Morse's character.
