In the Bedroom

I think the brilliance of this movie are the things that are not said.  So much of our lives involve thoughts that we don’t speak of.  This movie really takes off when the main characters – it isn’t obvious until later who they are – are force to deal with the unspoken.   And later, retreat back to it in a fantastic final scene.

It’s hard to believe that Todd Fields hasn’t done more films.   I highly recommend Little Children.
