Good work from Jeremy Renner
Verified purchase
I had never heard of this film, but I'm a fan of Jeremy Renner's work, so I chose it. It's very low-key, and from the beginning you sort of know what's going to happen. A lot of the narrative effect is based on moving around in time--flashing back, flashing forward. The film moves slowly toward a key encounter between the two major characters. I thought it was well directed, though perhaps the script could have been a little stronger. Driver and Renner are both very strong in this film.

worthwhile
Verified purchase
This is a very well filmed and structured story. The viewer fills in the overall situation through well chosen scenes without much exposition. It's very skillfully done and a pleasure to watch. I have given it 4 stars because there is a religious theme that emerges at the end, as a plot twist and emotional resolution. It's not well integrated with the style and presentation of the first 2/3 of the movie.
The child actor who plays the young son is extraordinarily good, and the principle actors also give flawless performances.

Weird.

Minnie Driver is about the only redeeming actor in this film. The film is tragic in its content and I hated the ending. I can this much;it will leave you thinking afterward. I found it disturbing except for the part where she forgives. Forgiveness is a good thing and it sets us free from bitterness and hate.

Excellent Portrayal
Verified purchase
If I were in a movie theater right now, I would sit through the end credits, the lights coming on; in stunned silence. The way the story is told is so very real. People don't remember things seamlessly, we remember bits and pieces of our traumas and put them together over time. That is how the writer/director presents the story: as two people remembering their own stories; and it all comes together in the end. Minnie Driver, as per her caliber as a character actor, is focused and deep. Dialogue, acting, direction, photography, music - all top notch.

Riveting drama
Verified purchase
Minnie Driver gave a really good performance in this drama, I kept trying to catch a hint of her accent slipping out, but it never did. Knowing her work mainly through her sitcom television rolls, I am impressed with how wonderfully she handled her character's intense drama. Also enjoyed the acting of the little boy, he was a cute kid. We laughed when we saw "Roy" ("The Office") in the role of the father.
A good movie, and a nice change from the movies that are popular today,

There wasn't much point to this movie
Verified purchase
There wasn't much point to this movie -- watched all the way to the end and said "That was it?"

Good acting, just no storyline other than a bleak outcome for all the main characters. The climax was over fast. Even the last few words were over so quickly and easily.

Really good
Verified purchase
I'm always suspicious of a movie rated with 3 stars because some of them are so very bad. I started watching this one before I realized and after I got started I went back to look at the rating. By then I was already very much into it. The acting is incredible and the storyline is well-thought-out. I'm glad I wasn't fooled by the three stars and watched the whole thing

WTF?
Verified purchase
Just WTF? I stopped after 5 minutes then forced myself to finish but the result was the same. Another worthless Prime movie. Any good movie on Prime you have to pay for. They are not included in your Prime membership..
