Down in the Valley Reviews
He happens to fall in love with Tobe, a rebellious teenager who has a complicated relationship with her father Wade. Tobe has a younger Brother, Lonnie, a shy and calm boy who is in a difficult position within the family. Relations between these four characters now begin to develop and Harlan rubs Wade the wrong way with his Western behaviour and views (although they're not so different after all).
Down in the Valley combines good acting by the always great Edward Norton, a very hot Evan Rachel Wood and an excellent David Morse with a thoughtful character study, that unfortunately falls apart a bit in the second half of the film. Nevertheless a decent flick - especially for Norton fans.
The acting of the protagonists is very fine.First of all Edward Norton and Rory Culkin.
The magic between them is very rare in some scenes, especially in the first additional ending. Those additional endings, there are two of them on my DVD, could be seen as a flaw, but I found it something
special,you could say that every piece of art that is rounded off is the death-mask of the conception, like Walter Benjamin once said.
I am sure I will see this movie more than once.
