In the Bedroom (2001) - Brilliant. Dir by Todd Field. Very real characters, great performances, superb direction and some outstanding cinematic moments, all together make it a great movie. The end seems a little stretched and a little lame for such a well-told movie otherwise, but it still makes a point. Tom Wilkinson (I) is excellent. Others include Sissy Spacek, Nick Stahl and Marisa Tomei. Plot (imdb): A New England couple's college-aged son dates an older woman with two small children and an unwelcome ex-husband. Then something terrible occurs in this wrenching, emotional drama.

DVD. 130 mins. 8.5/10. imdb
