I loved this film. The acting was terrific! (My compliments to Costner and Wood) It tore at my heart in some parts which just comes with good directing, and in the end gave me a sense of 'the simple life'.
If you enjoyed "Stand by me"You will like this one. Nice narration into yesteryear set in 1970 during the Vietnam War. A soldier comes home and has a hard time providing for his family. Pulls at your heart strings.
Also one of my favorites tells the story of a man who was away in a mental instituion after being in the war and he comes home tries to work and tries to teach his children right from wrong. The kids make this a fun movie so much action around a tree house and how it gets built and the war the kids have over it and close call for one of the little kids a bid on a house and some tragic moments worth seeing the movie
This movie was sooo funny... The actors and actress (children) were remarkably halariously funny... It also had it's defining moments that has a lesson to us all. I could watch this movie over and over and over ect.....
this looks good even though i have never heard of it or the actor elijah wood but he looks so adorable and this movie looks sad and since i live for sad movies i guess that this would be a good movie for me.
ahh! Elijah is the freakin cutest little 14 year old that ever lived! He is soo good in this movie with Kevin Costner, that his name comes before Kevin's! Yess! It is inspiring, and ive never seen the begining. need to do so! pronto!
