IMDB's Summary: The lives of two families change forever after a fatal tragedy takes place on Reservation Road.
My thoughts: I got sucked into this movie from my bedroom. Paul had left the TV on while he ran out & when he got back, he was not allowed to change the channel. It's such a sad movie & nobody wins in the end, there is no happy ending with this movie. The actors are incredible - I mean, come on, Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Ruffalo (who Paul is not impressed with unless he turns into The Hulk, apparently).
Joaquin always takes the part & plays the Hell out of it. I don't think there is a movie of his that I haven't, at least, enjoyed watching him. I think that he's amazing.
Unlike my husband, I like Mark in other movies. He's got this gentleness about him & that kind of makes you feel for his character in this movie.
Reservation Road's Grade:
