    This one turned out totally different to what I was expecting.

    There is a pivotal moment almost half way in that will make you really surprised.

    It's a very well done character study. The characters are all great to watch develop and you feel for them, be it in a good or bad way.

    The movie ended with absolute class for me. I recommend it to anyone that wants to see a family thriller.

    Gosling and Cooper are at their finest here.

    Fatherhood and loyalty to your blood are themes that hit me really hard for some indiscernible reason. The film is set into three parts, all relating to the important role of fatherhood to your sons identity.
    A strong trope that interests me is sociopathy, and to see Avery's lack of love manifest itself into AJ's sociopathy in part three, really hurt to watch.
    I find this film beautiful and it remains my favourite film of 2013.

    Fantastic, haunting, characters that will stay with you for days after leaving the cinema. An interesting structure that worked for me but won't for others. A story about fathers, sons, the decisions we make in life and their impact on further generations. The best film I've seen so far this year. 7 years 1 month ago
