This was not an easy movie to watch, however in saying that, it is a movie that should be watched, by anyone and everyone, not just those who have had a child of theirs die. Nicole Kidman & Aaron Eckhart are at their respective very best, I thought Aaron Eckharts role as SGT Nance in Battle Los Angles was his pinicle in acting, yet here he takes on a completly different role, that of a bereaved father, and lifts his acting ability into the rarified level of those actors who reach across time and roles to portray with excellence whatever they put their mind to. I won't go here into explaining the movie, others have done that well - all I will say is that if you have the opportunity to, watch this movie and make sure you have a tissue or hankie handy (yes, that means guys too). Persevere with this movie, there are some very emotional confronting scenes and others that just reach out and grab you. I'd rate this 8 - 8.5 out of 10.
