Directed by: Todd Field
Starring: Tom Wilkinson, Sissy Spacek, Nick Stahl, Marisa Tomei, William Mapother, William Wise, Celia Weston
Synopsis: A young man falls in love with a recently separated older woman, setting off a series of events.
What struck me most about this movie was how quiet it was and how real it felt. Traumatic events occurred but they weren't shown; the focus was on the effect of those events, minus the melodrama we've come to expect in movies. The acting was superb, particularly by Wilkinson and Spacek, and the story was brilliantly done. I recommend it.Added 10 February 2003 at 1:52 AM
