Very well acted; great study of how emotions, both expressed and unexpressed, affect us. Recommend this movie to all.

Nice work. I'm an older guy and the Foster actor gave me a glimpse of Steve McQueen for a second. Woody is always good to watch. Great sensitive scene in the kitchen. Hard to pull that off. The actress was a peach as well. Thanks.
