  1. David Morse, who plays the driver, gives a relatively sharp and understated performance -- for me the only bearable thing in the movie.
  2. 63
    What is good about this film is very good, but there are too many side trips, in both the plot and the emotions, for the film to draw us in fully.
  3. Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston give mature performances as the bereaved parents, and David Morse brings an offbeat touch to the basically decent man who traumatized their lives.
