A Rapid Raging River Flowing With Emotion


I am a sucker for emotional films. If there was ever a film to identify & visualize the relationship between two close brothers then this is it! This film flows with emotion from begin to end & is a sure tearjerker. I had no idea I was in for such a wild, exciting, & highly enjoyable ride. This film is what filmmaking is all about. The acting in this film is brilliant! EMILE HIRSCH & STEPHEN DORFF give perfect ten performances! EMILE's performance I this film is right on par with his performance in INTO THE WILD. DAKOTA FANNING also delivers a brilliant performance! I haven't seen her onscreen in a long time & its amazing how much she's grown. She will always be that little girl in CHARLOTTE'S WEB to me. If you love emotional films like I do, please do yourself a favor & check this one out. You won't regret it.

You are absolutely right, and i loved it too, remind me if only slightly of Buffalo 66 and Midnight Cowboy, yes, that kind of emotional flicks you say.
And truly the best from E.Hirsh since one of my alltime favourites which is Into the wild.
An awesome.
This, really is a beautiful one. Deserves some 8 for me.

I like emotional films also but I was completely unmoved by this. A rapid raging river, more like a stagnant pond.
