This is a GREAT movie about life, and relationships. There are no crazy special effects, it is not littered with pop songs. It will take you through a range of emotions, enough to make you forgive Michael Caine's British accent bleeding through his Southern Accent. I feel this was one of the most underrated movies of recent times, and I can only assume our hunger for more action, more special effects and more shocking subject matter had more than a little to do with that. I loved it, and hope you do, too.
