Movie Info

Playwright and character actor Tom Gilroy made his feature directorial debut with this dialogue-driven character study set against the backdrop of the changing seasons. Liev Schreiber plays Paul, a short-fused ex-con who finds unlikely comfort, stability, and camaraderie when he takes an odd job in park maintenance. On his first day, he's teamed with Murph (Ned Beatty), a groundskeeping veteran who manages to defuse an outburst between Paul and their snide supervisor (Campbell Scott). Paul

Beatty and Schreiber generate a convincing camaraderie that is warm and touching yet with a refreshing lack of sticky sentiment.

A breath of fresh air, and an antidote to all the mindless drivel Hollywood churns out on a regular basis.

Here's a film that values good dialogue and complex characters over dramatic gimmicks and cheap action.

A remarkable film, totally absorbing from the first frame to the last. It's a marvel of simplicity and depth, comfort and compassion.

every moment is jam packed with a philosophical or heavy moment, never giving his characters a chance to breath

...a pair of big-budget performances by Beatty and Schreiber.

The performances are all fine and heartfelt, but the story itself never provides much reason for us to care.

Beatty and Schreiber give accomplished performances, but are handicapped by the staginess of the script and the static nature of Gilroy's direction.

What a treat to finally see a pudgy character actor and a stereotypically type cast "bad guy" demonstrate their consummate acting skills

A marvelous movie about a friendship that slowly unspools between two unlikely souls.
