Ripley's movie review

Sherwood was remarkable, even without taking into consideration that this was his first film, and Sivak gave her character a surprising amount of depth. I thought Cassini was uneven though. At times, brilliant; at other times, not so much. The production was a bit lacking but mixing present day with legend and fantasy was interesting. And the movie gets bonus points for featuring the sport of lacrosse.
