Lee Chandler is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy.Written by

Lee says he and Randy were married on Misery Island. The family is ostensibly Catholic. The Catholic Church frowns on weddings outside an actual church. Unless there is a chapel on that Island it was not a real Catholic wedding. See more »

In Australia, the film was originally passed MA-15+ uncut, however the distributors opted to re-edit the audio and cut the length of the film, in order to remove every use of the term 'c-t' and 'motherf--er'. Following these changes the film was later re-classified and the rating was lowered to 'M'. See more »
I am just an average guy and think i am not a harsh judge of movies but this was a total waste of my time. I heard so much about it we actually bought it on demand. watched it with my wife and two kids 26 and 34 years old not one of us enjoyed it. It was slow, boring , and i heard so much about the acting that i was shocked when i watched it. I have never written a review before but felt so strongly about this that i had to. Sorry!!
