At first glance I had thought that this was a thriller – and how can one go wrong with Michelle Pfeffier right? and handsome boy – Ashton Kutcher – so how can you go wrong right? Anyhow I watched this last nite and it’s more a family movie – but not for young kids though – some love making scene but not explicit. It’s about a 2 mothers struggling with a death in the family and Michelle – getting invovled with Aston Kutcher – who is so much younger than her. Michelle’s son who is challenged finds help from Ashton Kuctcher who plays Walter. It’s not bad but not what i expected.
Walter, 24, is a wrestler, competing for a spot on the national team when he learns of his sister’s brutal death. He comes home to help his mother; he works out, takes a dead-end job, and goes to the trial of the accused murderer. He becomes friends with Linda, her husband murdered; she’s raising a teen son, Clay, who’s deaf. Walter gets Clay into wrestling. He accompanies Linda to events at a center where she works. He sees her at the courthouse. They wait for verdicts. Walter’s mother takes her daughter’s things to a rummage sale. Clay has his father’s pistol. How will grief express itself?
