Reservation Road

Release Date: November 15, 2007

Plot Outline: A man is on the search for the person that killed his young son in a hit and run.

This movie was quite slow but it had to be. This film is about taking a look at the emotions felt after parents tragically lose their son. It seemed as if the actions and emotional break downs rang true to the plot.

This must have been a difficult role for the actors to play. It is an emotional film. I could imagine it was draining. The acting was absolutely phenomenal. Jennifer Connoly, Mark Ruffolo, and Juaquin Phoenix were incredible. Especially the newly popular, Miss Fanning. Who is definitely taking after her big sister with her acting skills.

What I loved about this film was that we aren’t against any of the characters. A terrible thing happened but we get to know the characters from the very beginning, this way we aren’t put against the man that hit the little boy. We see each characters great emotional struggle. We are forced to empathize with each and every character.

I wouldn’t recommend this film unless you are ready to go on an emotional rollercoaster.
