    Sissy and Troy are good but the screenplay is rather scattered not leaving them with much to work with although they do have one good emotional scene.

The direction is remarkable and the acting is fabulous. Each actor comes across very natural and the characters are very believable....at many times, it is almost like watching a real life situation. The director's have dealt with the story in a very special manner, and still maintaining the fine balance between the feelings of love, anger, rage, guilt, and compassion. The mother and son relationship is the best that has ever been able to portray. It a must to see film. Nice. 4 stars
