Movies: Mystic River
Thursday, 2003 November 27 - 12:30 pm
Gritty and intense; this movie is a sure-fire Oscar candidate, but not one for the kids.

"Mystic River" is a compelling character study about the lives of three childhood friends. One of the three is abducted and molested as a child; the movie is an examination of how this singular event ripples into their adult lives.

A star-studded cast breathes life into each of the complex characters. Tim Robbins, in particular, gives one of the best performances of his already-unimpeachable career. Sean Penn is at his most Deniro-esque. Even Kevin Bacon and Laura Linney, whom I always expect to give flat and uninteresting performances, are alive with depth and drama. The characters were strong and well-defined, without being one-dimensional.

The story is dark and somewhat disturbing, and it won't please the mainstream Hollywood-fattened masses. But this is a movie definitely worth seeing for true film aficionados.

Rating: 4 / 5
