Audience Reviews

4 stars

An absorbing story about appealing, rounded characters. The more you think about the way it ends, the more you realise that any other ending would betray the purpose of the story.

Another winning film from Sayles.

Too slow for me in parts, and I'm not a fan of open ended movies, but still a bit better than simply "OK".
