His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy. Written by
I just need to stop watching movies that get high marks from the critics. Most of the time it leads to disappointment and this was another case of just that. The story had potential, but it just went nowhere. While the lead acting was not bad, neither was it Oscar worthy. It was very one dimensional IMO. After over two hours of waiting for the kid to make a change in his uncle's life, the movie pretty much just ends. Boring.
