It's a portrait of grief and devastation, and also of the ways in which the police and media can jump to conclusions and feed off of the public's anger and confusion.
A post-post-9/11 melodrama that only occasionally lives up to its noble ambitions.
It does something a lot of better-financed Hollywood movies don't: It makes you think.
"Torn" sensitively explores the aftermath of a mall bombing through the eyes of two mothers who each lost a teenage son in the explosion.

The filmmakers' big achievement here is the way they deal with [the story], never once resorting to the mawkishness or ugly rabble-rousing hype which all too often accompanies this subject.
