James Earl Jones,
A very somber movie ,with two depressing tragedies .Enough is enough,some will sneer,for,as it is often the case with this kind of screenplay ,it is not based on a true story.
This MTV work deals with responsibility: who,all in all,is responsible for the little girl's death? why didn't the driver's physician -not present in the movie,it is nevertheless doubtful he has never consulted- warned him of the danger he may encounter when he drives his car?Most likely,the girl's mother who leaves her on the street and does some shopping in the baker's shop! Is it possible that a whole town turn against a man whose responsibility is doubtful?And not only against the man ,but against the whole family: There's a scene where the boys play with little asthmatic Lukas's inhaler that shows the children's cruelty when they are manipulated by irresponsible parents.Why?One of the characters talks about the populace's own frustrations,own rancors which ask for a scapegoat,an outlet for their hatred .
The second part of the movie is a whodunit ,but the name of the killer does not matter;the whole town is guilty,from the baker who fires Evelyn to Jan's girlfriend who cowardly walks out on him.
The screenplay admittedly may seem melodramatic (too many things happen) ;it is nonetheless very efficient .Evelyn who must feel chucking it all shows resilience which commands admiration.
