Last AFF film of the year for me. I wanted to catch the new Lumet film as well but.. scheduling. OK enough complaining. This movie's really good and REALLY sad.
John Cusack plays a father of two daughters who hears that his wife's died in Iraq and has to figure a way to tell his daughters. The film works primarily because of the absolutely stellar acting from Cusack as well as the two kids.
And Clint Eastwood wrote the score.
So... yeah this is weepy as hell but really good. Cusack really showing his acting chops.
