One word OUTSTANDING! Chris Cooper delivers a powerful and very believable performance.Ryan Phillippe did an amazing job as well I think this is the defining movie that will make Hollywood wake up and now start taking him seriously as an actor and not look at him any longer as the young 'Cruel Intentions' kid.This one is a do not miss!!!
