Lee Chandler is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy. Written by
Not burying the departed until spring is true in some cases and mostly depends on the cemetery. In most cemeteries you can get by this with a steam shovel, however in older cemeteries those aren't permitted and it's required to wait for warmer temperatures. See more »
The shot of Route 128, from when Lee is first driving to Manchester, doesn't make sense. If he's going from Quincy to Manchester, he would be on the other side of the highway, and the rest stop and sign for the local theater would be visible, but from the other side. He would also be going uphill, not downhill. The way the shot is set up would imply he's going in the opposite direction of Manchester. See more »
Very boring and had to walk out as tired of the constant swearing
Very boring Had to walk out as tired of the constant swearing. If they
would have taken the swearing out maybe we would have stayed a bit
longer to see where it was going. Little story and little character
development. With all of the hype this was an incredible
disappointment. The most non-watchable cinema I have (started to) watch
in a long time. Got 45 minutes into it and gave up Nothing to recommend
it - not even scenery or music. Don't waste your time. At least the
popcorn was good. when it was finished, so was I. Husband hated it too.
and we lived in the area for 20 years! if only they had hired a
director, some writers and some actors ... . stay home and watch
anything on TCM or MGM instead. Happy Holidays to you and your family,
and safe travels.
