I just saw this today, less than 12 afters after discovering that Paul had been killed in a tragic car accident.
May you rest in peace sir.
This film was exceptionally acted by Paul, his daughter should be very proud.
It is the story of Nolan Hayes and his wife Abigail.
Abigail goes into labour early and is rushed into hospital, unfortunately this happens on the day hurricaine katrina strikes new orleans and she dies in child birth.
Nolans daughter is then placed inside an incubator with a ventilator to keep her breathing for 48 hours, after which the doctors tell him, she should be able to breathe on her own.
Trouble is, the waves hit, the lights go out, the power dies, the hospital evacuates, the baby cant be moved, and they promise to send help back for him, and Nolan has to try and keep his daughter alive completely alone.
This is a heartbreaking tragedy and Paul is on screen 100% of the entire film, is is a 1 person character drama.
By the time it ended i had tears streaming down my face.
Tragically this is the best he has ever acted, extremely emotional haggard performance, not oscar winning but brilliant.
The cover art is deceptive by the way as this is not an action movie, but is depicted as such.
Definitely worth the watch.
