tears of separation
4 August 2000 | by moviekid-2See all my reviews

I got to tell you. This is the kind of movie that will make you cry for like two hours. It was a film that dealt with people who lost their loved ones and how they cope with the loss. I was blown away from Jeff Bridges's performance. He could have downright earned a Oscar nomination. I thought all of the stars in this film was great. I thought that this was Peter Weir's best film since Witness. When i normally sees movies that are tearjerkers, I normally don't cry. But, after I saw this film, I was in buckets of tears. The direction was great, the acting was superb. I think it's true what they say about films. When it comes to writing a film, it's very easy to make people cry but it's heard to make people laugh. Out of that subject, it was a powerful film and I highly recommend it.

10 out of 10.
