I really enjoyed this film, especially the acting. The story telling was fluid and quick. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes long, but it goes by quickly. It is not as good as Silver Linings Playbook, but yet it is still a pretty good movie. I give it a B+

It was worth seeing. It was a little different side of Ryan Gosling than I've seen in other movies.

A beautiful, deep and haunting film. The complexities of life, choices, consequences, and the impact of fatherhood resonate deeply. Not fast food film, but a complex meal to digest.

Had high hopes. Love the actors. Love the IDEA of this story... but once the first "big thing" happens it got so dang boring. Snoozer for a good 1/2 of the flick.

I thought this movie was well acted. As a Schenectady resident, I enjoyed seeing familiar places in a movie like the bank and Aumiller's pharmacy, etc. The scenes shot out in the woods were beautiful. I thought it was realistic in dealing with past police corruption in Schenectady.I thought the movie was sad and somewhat grueling to watch. It showed that when people make bad choices, they will have to deal with bad consequences. This is a movie for adults, not for children.
