Mystic River (Three-Disc Collec
Superior acting, writing and direction are on impressive display in the Oscar-winning Mystic River, Clint Eastwood's 24th directorial outing and one of the finest films of 2003. Sharply adapted by LA Confidential Oscar-winner Brian Helgeland from the novel by Dennis Lehane, this chilling mystery revolves around three boyhood friends in working-class Boston--played as adults by Tim Robbins, Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon. They're drawn together by a crime from the past and a murder (of the Penn character's 19-year-old daughter) in the present. These dual tragedies arouse a vicious cycle of suspicion, guilt and repressed anxieties, primed to explode with devastating and unpredictable results. Eastwood is perfectly in tune with this brooding material, giving his flawless cast (including Laura Linney, Marcia Gay Harden and Laurence Fishburne) ample opportunity to plumb the depths of a resonant human tragedy, leading to an ambiguous ending that qualifies Mystic River for contemporary classic status. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.See all Product description

Made it halfway through this before it became pretty obvious that things would not end well for the wounded character played by Robbins. Since he was the only character I cared about, I stopped.
Having read the synopsis, it's clear that the whole plot hinges on a series of highly implausible coincidences and some dubious psychology. Why people laud this is beyond me. It's far from the worst film ever made, but it ain't all that great.
Some bits were difficult to follow cos of mumbling
with Sean Penn being the worst offender.
Put subtitles on but it didn't help cos they were out of sequence!
So had to turn them off.
Glad I didn't buy the dvd that wouldn't work!
Watched this on prime.
Sean Penn is superb , however the pace and suspense , is completely missing .
