I feel a little ambivalent about this movie. On the one hand the acting was great. However, the story seemed to be a little scattered. The central message of this movie seems to be contradicted at the end. If you see it then let me know if you agree. I’m still trying to sort it out.
The best part of the film is the acting. I’m becoming a big fan of Colin Farrel. He seems to get better and better with each role. Of course Russell Crowe is his usual great self. The woman who played Beverly, Jessica Brown Findlay, did a fine job. Nothing to complain about here. And oh yes, a fantastic cameo but I’m not going to tell you by who. You’ll know when you see it and you’ll love it.
As I said, the story has some problems, but that’s only if you try and dissect it. There’s no question it pacts some emotional impact. The audience gasped a few times and there were a few tears shed. Unquestionably poignant.
Also, the horse was probably the best part of the movie.
