A review by Mike Shea Movie Rating: ( * * * · · ) DVD Rating: ( * * * * · )
I had heard mixed reviews of this one, but I have to say that I thought it was pretty damn good. A very unique story style to it, told almost as a documentary with enacted memories of the events. The Gus Van Saint (of Good Will Hunting fame) did an excellent job putting this one together and Nicole Kidman is a super major league hottie (at least a D on the hexadecimal rating chart). The story is quite good, and the ending is wonderful. Only Kidmans role seems so plastic that it really isnt realistic (I guess this was the point). The rest of the actors are perfectly cast. My only complaint that Don Henleys Dirty Laundry never plays during the movie even though it is in the ad. The DVD is 16x9 enhanced and includes a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. No extras though. Overall, quite a piece of work and definitely worth the rental.
