Rated NR

Tom Wilkinson and Sissy Spacek star as an older couple dealing with the most unpleasant of empty nests in this overly long, but often excellent, film. Too much time is wasted in the middle third, and the final section is full of Hollywood clichés, but on the whole In the Bedroom is a successful exploration of a relationship rocked by external events. Nick Stahl plays their son, and Marisa Tomei gives a surprisingly strong performance as a young mother whose abusive, estranged husband is making her life less than pleasant. The real star of the film may be the Maine landscape and lensman Antonio Calvache's almost painfully beautiful cinematography. While In the Bedroom drags quite heavily in the middle, the camerawork and acting largely, if not entirely, make up for it.
