This movie is a masterpiece. It is the most significant film ever made about this long-neglected part of the American landscape. It shows how four young men, all in their 20s, can grow into responsible adults and still care for their children and be genuinely happy. When I first heard of this film, I thought it would be a typical boy-meets-girl story. I was wrong. This is a film about adult boys, but it is more than that. It is a film about the American Dream. The film shows how these boys and their families came to take the American Dream and take their lives into their own hands. It shows how they have turned a small town into a real community. The film also shows the children's struggles with everyday life. I won't give away the ending, but I think it is both sad and beautiful. The acting is superb. The two principal characters, John Cusack and Anthony Mackie, do an incredible job with each other. Cusack's performance is especially noteworthy because he was the actor chosen for the part of the Dad. Anthony Mackie is a rare actor who understands the nuances of each character he portrays. His performance is particularly notable because he is the child of an alcoholic. Mackie's performance is extremely complex. He gives his character strength and vulnerability, while simultaneously showing that he has real emotions and sensitivity. He gives both characters life and depth. It is the most satisfying performance of the decade, and his performance is very memorable. John Cusack and Anthony Mackie are certainly worth watching, and they should be seen and appreciated.

This movie is a major work of art, as I will get to in a minute. But it's just as well that way, because it really is a big piece of work. A kind of "art film", but a really good one. And I'd say the same for all of De Palma's films. One thing I didn't know about this film is that it was filmed entirely in Maine. I'm sure that the results of filming there were good, but I've never had a film filmed entirely in Maine. If I'd had one of those, it might have been a little less "Hollywood" in its "arty". I don't know about anyone else, but I'd be more inclined to see a film in California. That way, I could see the lighting and editing, and there's that little bit of history and "look" that you get from "old Hollywood" film-making. But in the end, it's an interesting little story, and the film is good enough to make it worthwhile. I'm surprised that it's rated PG-13 in the US. It's a little more on the "questionable" side. The imagery is very effective, and I recommend it highly. I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times, and my wife made me feel like she was watching a comedy when I didn't think I would. When we finally did get home, we saw the movie again and really liked it, and had to rent it. I think if you've got kids or are looking for a quiet movie to go to with them, this is a good choice. I'm sure I'll have to see it again before I can tell you whether it was good or not. And if you are like me, and you don't like to be completely "sensitized", you may want to watch it with the sound on. It's not a classic, but it's a good movie, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes a good, grown-up movie.
