I really loved this movie. It was slow, but it was just beautiful and dark. I liked all of the characters- it was so easy to like all of them, except for Paul Newman's son. You felt so much and I was pulling for all of them to be happy- and 'win' as it were. It was a great story, very non-tradional. The directing was phenomenal! Absoultely outstanding.
All in all I give it a big thumbs up minus 3 points for length and too many slow parts. :)
