Normalerweise kann ich mit Kevin Bacon nur als Bösewicht etwas anfangen. In dieser Rolle hat er mich jedoch vollends überzeugt; er spielt den Charakter überzeugend und glaubhaft . Evan Rachel Wood ist ebenso famos. Was ergibt es also, wenn die zwei Hauptakteure des Film brillieren? Genau, einen ruhigen, nachdenklichen Film über alle Barrieren und Konventionen hinweg und über die Macht der Freundschaft. Und ein rührendes, trauriges Ende!

Nur der Look des Films, dessen Ursache ein geringes Budget sein könnte, störte doch den Filmgenuss etwas.

I was hoping for a cute, funny, heartwarming film, but it is none of these things. It's boring, aimless, and miserable.

Phenomenal performances by Kevin Bacon & Rachel Wood in a touching story.

i just seen this movie a couple of times but it is very good. kevin bacon is never campy in his role of a retarded young man and i am sure that is a delicate line to play and also a great bond/believable friendship between him and a very young evan rachel wood. the movie is quite good and nice story ;)

Another one of Kevin B. best! This movie is full of heart warming drama! A must see! I fell in love with it. Kevin plays a handicap man who is friends with a 10 year girl, they do everything thing together, he helps her when her mother dies, she helps him through his difficulties!

I fell in love with this movie. I do not understand why people hate Kevin Bacon´s performance so much, because, in my case, it was really good. But first, i'd like to watch the movie in it's original language, because i watched in spanish.

Loved this film. Classic. One of Kevin Bacons best films, and probably the film that got Evan Rachel Wood noticed.

a mentally handicapped kevin bacon is far more disturbing than it is entertaining.

Amazing... The story is pretty strong. The friendship between a kid and a mental ill man (two innocent people) is pretty strong!!!

"Digging to China" is a deeply moving story that is wholly original and heartfelt. The cast, especially the two leads, give wonderful and realistic performances that succeed in bringing you into the story with them. The characters all make sense, and together their conflicting views and experiences bring this film to a crushing climax of mutual misunderstanding that is so honest and awesome to behold. I hope Timothy Hutton gives directing another try, because he shows some real potential here.

Great performance by Kevin Bacon. Sentimental with touching moments, but has moments where it just...falls flat.

Very nice story! Kevin Bacon plays excellently as a mentally challenged personality has a lot to teach us, about the value of friendship & kindness.

Kevin Bacon does well in his Dustin Hoffman inspired performance, but is leet down somewhat in Hutton's dumbing down of the storyline, clearly aiming a mature film for a younger audience group.
