I bought this DVD to make up a $25 order in order to get free shipping. I have always enjoyed George Clooney, loved him in 'ER' and looked forward to his occasional visits on 'Rosanne', however I had never seen much of his recent work. WHAT A SURPRISE! This is a brilliant movie, no glamour involved here, George plays his part of a grieving husband and previously distant father completely convincingly. The movie makes you think, keeps your interest, minimal use of the 'F' word and and when it is used whether you like it or not it fits. It will go down with 'On Golden Pond' as one of my favourite movies about finding the light at the end of what seems to be a never ending dark tunnel. I loved every minute of it. Would recommend it to anybody who enjoys a story which does not involve any sex or violence.
