5.0 out of 5 stars
Great film with a stunning performance by Gerry Butler, 26 Jan. 2012
This really is a must see film for the outstanding performance by Gerard Butler in this role. It is such a shame that it didn't get more publicity and a wider release at the time, and how Mr Butler didn't get nominated for any awards for his performance as Sam Childers is beyond me.
Gerry totally becomes the character of Childers to the point you completely forget you are watching Gerard Butler. Acting at it's finest and not a hint of a Scottish accent!
Good supporting performances too, especially from Michael Shannon as Childers' junkie friend.
A heartbreaking story that deserves to be seen by all.
