This is a very moving film, a family becomes torn apart when their son is killed by a hit and run driver.
'Ethan Learner' (Joaquin Phoenix) is consumed with thoughts of revenge for his sons death, he saw the vehicle disappear away from the incident and is hell-bent on tracing all owners of a similar vehicle in the area.
'Ethan' seems to forget that his wife 'Grace' (Jennifer Connelly) is also grieving, the marriage appears to take second place.
The hit and run driver normally an up-standing citizen is totally 'racked' with guilt, even more so when 'Ethan' unknowingly hires him to help trace the guilty party.
Will 'Ethan' carry out his intent 'an eye for an eye' ?
This is a well crafted,Top Quality Movie, worth watching.

Reservation Road is showing very lifelikely how parents must feel when they loose their child from one minute to another. The story becomes even more dramatic when the hit-and-run driver responsible for her son's death is hiding and lying instead of going to the police and telling the truth. The grief-stricken father (Joaquin Phoenix) is chasing the hit-and-run driver on this own because he feels no support from the police. The mother is acting in a different way, she tries to get on with her life, it seems that she's doing it primarily for the little daughter.

Dwight (Mark Ruffalo), is not strictly a bad person, he is a loving father, and the guilt he is carrying most time of the movie, eventually destroyes his life too.

I felt that all roles were played very well and after seeing the film two times, I'm still very impressed - thought-provoking movie!

Reservation Road [2007]

Ethan Learner (Joaquin Phoenix) and wife Grace (Jennifer Connelly) comfortable family existence is shattered when their son Josh is killed by a hit and run driver.

Dwight Arno (Mark Ruffalo) the driver that killed Josh is not drunk or on drugs, he is a sensitive lawyer who is late retuning his son after a days parenting access and is rushing to return his son to his divorced wife. Dwight does not report the incident and as a lawyer is briefed to try and put pressure on the police on the flagging investigation into Josh's death.

This is an intense drama in a very fine screen play, but the film falls short of its potential.

Mark Ruffalo gives a good performance as the conscience stricken Dwight, but surprisingly Phoenix and Connelly just do not seem comfortable in their roles. In the documentary Phoenix says he had difficulty emphasising with the reaction of his character to the tragedy.

Grief is a very difficult emotion to confront unless you have experienced it, and Jennifer Connelly as a mother could not face up to fully understanding the loss of a child.

If only Phoenix and Connelly could have allowed themselves to be carried along with the gut wrenching emotions of the drama this could have been a great film, unfortunately they did not and it falls that essential bit short.
