Loved it.

Wept for the last hour, on and off. It was OK. I was the only person in the theater!

"Growing up is tough."

Only one woman in the movie--Bev Ladouceur, played by Laura Dern.

Didn't like the reflection for the murdered boy. We can and should question God when innocent people suffer! Book of Job. GOD is the answer and the answerer to all of our questions. We should not be ashamed of our need to cry out to HIM when we are in agony!

Mt 23: "Those who exalt themselves will be humbled; those who humble themselves will be exalted."

Sony: Be Moved.

Watch the credits!

"Family is anyone who loves you unconditionally."

"Perfect effort" is not the same thing as "playing perfectly."

"Don't let a game define who you are."

Not sharing their feelings ...

"Bring your A heart to the game."

"The last chapter in the book you are writing today is 'Brotherhood.'"
