MYSTIC RIVER (2003 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Mystic River—excellently directed by Clint Eastwood—stands as one of his best movies since the 2014 release of Jersey Boys. This movie won Sean Penn the 76th Academy award for Best Actor and Tim Robbins the Best Supporting Actor award. The film is well written and well told.

Storyline

Tragic childhood events follow three men into adulthood for a final resolution.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This film does not play down its subject matter. It’s a classic tale worth both your time and money. The acting stands as among the best. It serves the late teen/adult audience.
