Has anyone besides me seen this yet? I'm still thinking about it a day later; it's one of the more haunting movies I've seen in recent years.

Definitely in my top 5 for the year. I expect multiple Oscar nominations (Affleck, Williams, Hedges, Lonergan).

The whole cast was outstanding. I was also impressed with the seamless way the film moved between the modern-day scenes and the flashbacks; it was like watching a very intricate puzzle being assembled, as the story slowly comes together.

One of the best movies I've seen all year. I see multiple Oscar noms coming. Casey is one of the most underrated actors out there.

I want to see this film. I've seen the preview, and it looks interesting. Plus I'm from the area, so that makes it all the more appealing. I just don't see an upcoming schedule for it, where I live in Fla. Evidently it must be a limited release film.

It's the sort of film that benefits from a a carefully planned release schedule so it can build based on word-of-mouth. I expect it will go into wider release soon.

I found a theater showing this film, so I got to see it today. It was excellent. It was very well put together. I agree it is played like a puzzle being put together. I did like seeing the seaside town, and the homey New England feel of the region. I do miss that about Mass now that I retired in Fla. What I never understand in the many movies set in Mass. Why does Hollywood think that all, working class people of the region. Speak in such a way Cuss word after Cuss word. I virtually see it in every movie set in the Boston area.


So this movie definitely gets my recommendation.

Smile Saw it also

Excellent acting; haunting feeling also.

Not prepared for the ending though.
