I will probably be in the minority with the following review, but I must admit that I found Todd Field's In The Bedroom disappointing. After hearing and reading about the many awards, accolades, Oscar talk, and Top 10 lists this film has garnered, I went in expecting one of the best films of the year. Sadly, I must report, that although it contains great acting from Sissy Spacek, Tom Wilkinson and Marisa Tomei, I found the film to be incredibly dull and uninteresting. To me, it was an average story, a domestic drama about two parents that are forced to deal with tragedy in their own ways. The film move at such a slow pace, that I was strugglng to stay interested. I guess that for me, I just did not connect with the story enough for me to care about what happens to any of the characters. It was even predictable. In The Bedroom is not a bad fim by any means, and there were parts of it that I really liked, but as I said, on the whole, it was a disappointing experience. Every once in a while, I see a film that is being universally praised by almost everyone who has seen it, only to be ultimately, and sadly, let down. This is one of those films. I really wanted to love this film.
