I loved this movie! Nathan Watt was great and so was Michael Richards (Kramer from 'Seinfeld')

An emotional roller coaster!

I thought Nathan should have recieved an award for his roll, he was great! Maury Chaukin was funny as the quirky Uncle!

Right, I know this movie. Nathan Watt is smart indeed, the story, however, did not live up to my expectations. I mean, yeah, the underlying themes are lovely and easily detectable. The end was quite good, when Nathan and his dad were watching the movie sequence together in which the boy's late mom appears. That's a heart-rending sequence. The rest of the plot was somehow a bit too weird too me. I mean the uncles - what shall I make of them? They are two thorough oddballs, and I just don't like such characters who are nuts. Nathan though - he was the one who actually made me watch the entire movie. The father-son aspect was fine and emotionally agreeable, as well as the boy's uncertainty whether or not to change his confession. He did very well, indeed. The movie itself is honest and dealing with tough themes. I'll give a 7 actually.
