Poor Acting and Directing
I thought this film would blow me away and might be original considering the subject matter. I was wrong. The acting was less than average from 3 actors that are usually brilliant. The characters are inconsistently played (except for Brenda Blethyn), probably due to poor direction. Blethyn's character is over the top and melodramatic. Mena's is wispy and under-played and James Franco's doesn't have half the impact it should.
In short, without spoiling the plot, I expected far more from Nicolas Cage and from the actors.
Poor effort from a story that had the potential to be interesting, emotional and gripping.
