"Something animated and vital looks out from our childrenÂ’s eyes. Whatever it is, we recognize it and know it is precious. Yet except in rare cases today, that spirit is broken early and irreparably. The light goes out all too soon. We know, because at some inarticulate and dimly conscious level, we are those children. We feel the wind of spirit move us at odd moments, but put it down to nostalgia or temporary possession by some impractical flight of fancy. We shake it off and get back to work. Robbed of a voice to speak of these things, something animated and vital looks out from our own eyes, but only in rare, unguarded moments -- and even then, wary, circumspect, suspicious. We let no one see what we fear no one will understand." --Chris Locke

This movie was well made and acted but bored the hell outta me! SOOOO cliched. I can fgrvioe some cliches if they also give me something new along with it, but this was nothing BUT cliches. I new what was gonna happen. The ending I saw coming from frame one! Clooney did a great job, I'll admit, it's one of his best performances. But this gets a rental
