This movie is hardly like the book. The book is very superior, and the movie introduced too many unnecessary elements with little effort made to tie them all together.

Great book to read, though.

Try the Italian DVD "I Nostri Ragazzi " - so much better !

Terrible movie! it made no sense to me what so ever. Now I LOVE Laura Linney in her performances in many films, perhaps she should have skipped this one. I give it a F

What a waste of talent!! If you like the premise watch "Carnage" with Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, and Christoph Waltz - directed by Roman Polanski... This film seems to have at least two directors which follow totally divergent paths to show the pathology of the parents. The journey to Gettysburg is unnecessary and contributes nothing but confusion. The lying between Laura Linney ( whom I usually love in her performances ) and her husband Steve Coogan ( baaad casting ) is so pervasive that you end up wondering if anything about the couple is accurate. Horrible film!! Kristi and Abby Tabby
