I'm going to say that I actually really enjoyed this film even though its not my usual type of thing. I thought it a well-acted, character driven, family drama. Clooney is well worth the money and acts in a very natural way. I even forgot it was him for most of the film. I think the excruciating screen kiss between Mat and Julie was a brilliant moment and, for me, the only really superfluous element was "Sid". I realise he was there to provide a cheap gag or two, but they were too cheap for this film. I'm not sure how you derive that the land deal is extraneous, but I'll skip by that :). I really wanted to see Coriolanus but didnt have the time to get over to Wolverhampton and back in time to pick Debi up, so I'll catch this at Warwick Arts Centre in a few weeks. Last night it was either this or Warhorse (I really dont like "animal" heartstring manipulation drama).

That's brilliant. And so very true. Thanks for posting Jessica.

I suspect this is the first review of the movie I would agree with, although I haven't seen it yet. I might give it a go when it reaches a DVD. I always enjoy your reviews!
