Good movie with a few good twists and turns. Gosling was great and Cooper was excellent. Really shows the differences in society and how you cannot escape your past.

Beautifully Sad

By tobuzztubas

The movie was perfectly pensive, introspective, and so sad. It shows different perspectives on how our choices shape us, and the next generation. The acting was incredible, especially Brady Cooper's performance. Wow. Not a need-to-see-at-the-theatre movie, but the music at that volume/proximity was moving. Overall a beautifully sad film.

Very well acted, beautiful cinematography

This is a serious movie, not Hollywood formula, and so, perhaps not for everybody. All the actors were very good, including most surprisingly, Eve Mendes. Impressive cinematography given the somewhat grimy side of small town America that is the setting and in a way, a character in the movie.There are big themes at play here, including "sins of the father" and moral ambiguity. Are any of these characters "all bad?" I really enjoyed this movie and my companions and I had a lot to chew on afterwards. It's certainly not a blockbuster (although there are some well done chase scenes), but well worth the price of admission. P.S. Check out the first scene, which is all one continuous shot.

Expectation was too high

Nothing special about this movie, the relatively high rating on IMDB is just because the ending was somewhat unpredictable. But the story line is too fragmented. You have to follow different roles and learn their stories and in the end you don't know you are on who's side of the story. Not much to be remembered of.
