Saw this movie at the Fort Worth Film Festival because a lot of it was shot in my old hometown. Loved the book, just hoped the movie wouldn't be an embarrassment. WHAT A SHOCK! It is awesome!!! So true to the book. While there is some language, it's not gratuitous. In fact, not as bad as what you'd really hear in the oilfield. No gratuitous nudity or sex, just tasteful ways of implying some things that happened. A great story of a good but victimized man overcoming all odds but then letting his bad angels back in. Does he rise from the ashes? You need to see this movie. It is A #1 GREAT!!! Actor Lane Garrison nails the lead role on the money. So good I forgot I was watching a movie. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give TIO a 10.
