    Director Estes has created a top-notch film if not an open canvas for some of today's fine young actors. Rory Culkin is standout as 12 year old Sam. Comparisons to River's Edge, Deliverance and Stand by Me are somewhat just and understandable. Estes, though is comfortable letting this tense little film breath and I prefer a comparison to another thriller of recent years, The Deep End. Outstanding performances, direction and locale. A somber, melancholy little thriller.
