You can tell from all the award nomination that this movie is definitely a winner in the eyes of the critics. The casting of this movie including Woody Harrelson, Ben Foster, and Jena Malone is very interesting, and I liked it. This movie gives you the inside look on the military messengers, because most movies that are similar don't go into detail about what the messengers actually go through when they deliver the horrible news to the families about the passing of their loved ones. I was on the edge of my seat when it came to the scenes where they had to go into the homes, because each sequence was different. Like most military films, you automatically know it will be mostly dramatic, but when you put these actors of such great caliber in one movie. It hits like a brick to your heart, and it definitely leaves you remembering and spreading the word. The only part that didn't go well with me was the lack of appearance from Jena Malone, but the movie was pointed toward the woman who lost her husband in the war, in which eventually Ben Foster starts developing feelings for her. I didn't really feel the spark "sort of speak" or real connection between Ben Foster and the widow played by Samantha Morton. I was surprised when I seen an appearance in a couple of scenes with Steve Buscemi. The guy mostly known for acting in some of Adam Sandler movies, if you can remember crazy eyes in Mr. Deeds. I think it will do fairly well in theaters this year.
