very good movie28 September 2015

Having read the book when it came out, I never would have thought it possible to make a movie out of such a complex story. The book haunted me, and I recommended it to everyone who would listen. I saw the movie today and was not disappointed in the slightest.

A very touching 9 / 11 story. A boy lost his dad and his mom lost her husband.

Worth a download09 October 2012

Well acted and quite entertaining. An unusual way of telling a story that has its genesis in the 9/11 tragedy but not specifically about that event. I recommend this for an opportunity to imagine just how the ripple effects of any personal tragedy can have consequences for many people long... more

Wow!08 October 2012

Brilliantly conceived and fabulously executed. It does suffer a slow period as the direction of the story changes (from where you think it is going), but it has such a clever series of twists. A nice movie about a sad subject and I am so glad I watched it. Sandra Bullock ... wonderful.

Very moving26 August 2012

I don't really like sad movies but this is just so special. I love the way that the child and mother grow through the story. it is a little slow to start and at times it feels a little wrong but it all comes together in the end. Have a box of tissues with you as it is very sad and even the... more
