I was browsing through channels in my sofa, when suddenly a movie was starting, saw the name Viggo Mortensen in the credits and gave it a shot.
I was very surprised with this movie. A simple story, but done in a way that touches you inside. It's one of those movies with a simple plot, small scenery that brings so much more to it.
Viggo is at his best here, in fact i think this is his best performance ever. He really is a great actor and i hope he gets more attention in the future (specially after the LOTR trilogy and Hidalgo).
Patricia Arquette has one of her best performances and David Morse is perfect as the "good brother". I dont know if this movie came out in cinemas, at least in my country it didnt, but you have some oscar winning performances here.
Sean Penn directs it and shows he's so much talented in the screen as behind the cameras. A wonderful movie, not to be missed, i highly recomend it.
