Clint Eastwood directs Sean Penn, Tim Robbins and Kevin Bacon as childhood friends reunited as one of their daughters dies and her death is investigated.

I thought they did a great job with the book and having most of the main things in the movie. There were lines straight out of the book in the movie too. The only changes they made were very minor and a few plot points they left out might have been cut out scenes or just left out to not make the movie too much longer.

Sean Penn and Tim Robbins both won Oscars for their roles and I can see why after watching this movie.

Rating: B+
