one of the best films ever made
16 September 2001 | by luluchichiwawaSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful, deeply moving film with an astonishing early performance from Joe Mantegna as a mentally challenged individual who proves himself to his doubtful uncle. Great music, superb cinematography, wonderfully written, an outstanding display of filmmaking.
