Terrible storyline. I'm sorry I watched this. And when are we going to get couples who are actually close in age? Costner is 10 years older than Lane. I mean, I suppose it happens but not as often as they'd like us to believe in movies.
I sat down with a friend to watch this POS, and after 15 minutes we looked at each other and agreed, the more boring movie we've ever seen. Click.

Sad subject. Intense. Characters to love and hate.
Lane & Costner always bring such authenticity to their characters. Not exactly a "feel -good" movie because of its content, & an emotionally charged subject . Though fiction, excellent. portrayal of what occurs in reality, minus a couple of scenes. However, in the early 60's in very rural America, who knows. And must mention Lesley Manville for the Mafioso like mother & her clan. It's nice to see characters with a moral compass , when there's so much superficial these days. IT'S VERY EASY (& LONELY) TO SOCIAL DISTANCE WHEN YOU'RE THE ONLY PERSON IN THE THEATER ! There's room for more. AMC is a great movie experience. COME-ON, there's room for at least 5 more. At this particular movie there were ~ 9 people.rh
The acting and actors were excellent. Although a very disturbing subject, the story depicts the situations that people can find themselves in along with the love of a family for a child and the extent people will go to protect one. I recommend the movie but do know that is tearful and disturbing.
Very well acted,, although not a happy topic it would make one think about domestic violence that is scary and out of control... Also find the movie theatre experience to be positive and safe
A Movie for mature audiences about mature adults, a mature love, mature behavior against white trash. A slow moving movie (negative not intended) that evolves to an intense dramatic conclusion. Well directed & acted .by two seasoned actors. .RH
This movie was good but, hard to watch at times and quite sad, acting was really good.
Frustrating ...... 2 Polarized women ....who are always right.... a group of bad guys (that you don't see do anything wrong)....It is never right to hit a child or a spouse.. But Social Services should be brought in on the entire cast.... Grand parents want to take their grandson back without asking the mom.. endless crap...
Acting was good. Intense, drama, hard to watch at times. Bring tissues.
I think this movie was well acted and well designed.
Sad but very very well done. Thank you.
The movie was set in the early sixties and they were true to the time period throughout. Didn't notice a single thing out of place. Great writing acting and producing.
Fantastic thriller, really enjoyed this.
