This is a very powerful and well realized film. No, it does not compare to the book, but that is not a fair comparison. The acting is excellent, the direction confident and true to the story, and the plot, although minimal, never fails to hold interest. The very ending didn't quite live up to the rest to my mind, but on the whole this is a first rate movie. In particular, fathers and sons should see it for the portrayal of the deep, if often unspoken bonds, between them.
