It must be awful to be an actor and get offered one silly Hollywood project after another. Most Hollywood drivel doesn't even seem to require any real acting, so to watch this small movie, filled with excellent performances and to watch Orlando Bloom give an Oscar worthy performance was a real treat, even though the film itself , dealing with the subject of child sexual abuse is not an easy subject to watch. The film is not perfect, but the performances are top notch and Bloom is flawless as the tortured soul dealing with what his life has become. He is not someone I usually watch since he makes movies that don't interest me, but his performance is outstanding , completely believable and heartbreaking. There is not one moment in which he appears to be acting. A very well done movie, but a must see for anyone who loves top-notch acting.
