    This becomes Tobey Maguire's film to dominate, and I've never seen these dark depths in him before. Actors possess a great gift to surprise us, if they find the right material in their hands.
  2. The film is gripping---an honorable and beautifully acted addition to the tradition of homefront war stories.

  4. A heartbreaking film that speaks to the lifelong aftershocks of war, and to the powerful bonds of family and of love.
