I went into this movie thinking it would try it’s best to pull at my heart-strings and in turn I would watch with my arms crossed blinking off any sense that I may be about to blub(cry).
Well I failed, it’s the first movie that has made me cry since – Who will love my children (1983)
I wasn’t expecting it, I felt relaxed in the knowledge that my emotions will be kept in tact but each time this families nightmare continued to get worse I found myself blubbing even more, as I turned to my wife I noticed the streams of tears running down her cheeks.
Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor were outstanding, at no point did I doubt what was happening on the screen,I believed in both actors and felt completely hypnotised by their performance.
