4.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming not-quite-family drama., 28 Dec 2008
This review is from: Behind The Mask [DVD] (DVD)
Anyone looking to watch this solely for Mary McDonnell, as I originally did, will probably be reasonably happy with it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the film captured my attention in itself, with wonderful performances from Donald Sutherland and Matthew Fox. It may be a little "schmoopy" for people who dislike Lifetime-type features, but it's above that quality, and has a genuine heart to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A true story of redemption - very positive - well worth seeing., 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Behind The Mask [DVD] (DVD)
I saw a trailer for this film on another DVD, and it looked like an interesting story. I like Mary McDonnell (she that was in Dances w Wolves) so that was another reason I bought it. I love these American/Canadian based-on-a-true-story movies, and this is a good one. Donald Sutherland is good in it, as you'd expect. Mary M's part isnt big. Its a story of redemption - Donald Suth works in a a place that employs disadvantaged/handicapped people. A particularly needy employee saves Donald's life and the film tells the tale of the friendship that grew between the two afterwards - the two men both found healing and redemption thro their friendship.
The Donald S character - altho he was the 'together' one, with the good job and nice house and nice wife (Mary M) - he was just as needy in his own way, as his disadvantaged friend. They both emerge as better people. The end of the film is quite touching and warm - a real story of hope and positivity - and true as well. There's humour here as well - if you enjoyed the humour in Rain Man, then you'll find some humour in this. Im always reluctant to award 5 stars, but my 4 stars here mean - excellent story, well worth seeing.

This is a film i would recommend to anyone who loves non fiction films....sure, there's poetic licence but the intrinsic value and meaning of the film will affect anyone with a receptive mind....

I requested this as I like films starring Donald Sutherland having really enjoyed 'The Eye of the Needle', this is more of a 'feel good movie'.
