[ Spoilers ahead ]
This really pisses me off. The previews made the story up to be about an affair between a wife and her husband’s brother while the husband is off fighting in Afghanistan. But there wasn’t an affair. It was nothing but a kiss? Just a kiss?
The real drama came from what Sam – the husband – had to do while he was a POW. That’s some serious stuff and more than worthy of carrying a dramatic story.
But we only get a little bit of that, and then a little bit of the brother/wife indiscretion, which splits the story right down the middle. If the producters had just chosen one or the other they could have made a much better and more focused movie.
