Top shelf. Great story about love, obsession, failure and honesty. Fine performances by all, especially the two boys.
very good movie.
3 1/2 stars. Slow moving but it kept me engaged. Nice performances from the two boys.
I liked it! It's better than most movies out right now.
slow! not much in the line of a plot. I kept waiting. for the good part maybe the last 5 minutes.
Excellent movie, lots of drama and suspense.
awesome. not quite better than sex, but definitely full price
We liked the acting of the two young boys, but otherwise the movie very poor and slow. Not worth wasting money on.
Exellent movie , you wont be dissapointed
Flowed like a mystical river with undercurrents that will continue to tug and pull at you, even long after you leave the theatre.
This was a very boring movie i actually fell asleep in the first 30 minutes. its a sort of movie a redneck would love very anti feminist. it was made in redneck country.
Fantastic movie, one of the best I've seen this year. It didn't get much press exposure but it should be in the running for a few Oscars. Really good plot, really good acting, and some pretty deep themes. Feminists beware, it kind of casts women in a bad light. But it's told from a little boys point of view (like Huck Finn) so keep that in mind. It also says some things about men, regarding their immaturity and inability to grow out of childhood. This movie will give you something to think about!
A real movie for a change. The characters are believable and engaging. The story is good and flows along very well. Worth seeing if you enjoy a movie with some substance over action/adventure.
This was a rare movie because it had a really good story--- very non-Hollywood !!! I highly recommend it for the whole family, 12 and over. The little ones would get restless. Loved it!!!
As far as Matthew McConaughey goes, if you ever just had to have done one movie in your life, this would have been the one you would want to immortalize you. Everyone knows a guy like this. Glad I went to see this movie. And I just wanted to go somewhere air conditioned.
