With Mr McConaughy have only a few film roles under his belt when taking this role, he surpasses every expectation. When he gets a role, he throws himself into each and every one of them and always gives an absolutely sturdy and strong performance. Albeit this film being 2hrs and 30minutes long, this is a film not to be missed, the sheer connection to each and every character, through each character is something to be witnessed. With beautiful and equally strong perfomances from Samuel L. Jackson, Ashley Judd, the 2 Suterlands, Charles S. Dutton, Kevin Spacey and Sandra Bullock this movie will hit you in many different ways. An absolutely amazing cast of actors and actresses as well as a beautifully acted film from an equally compelling book. Dont miss your chance watching this... youll be missing out.
