– nf – You take two great actors and provide an unusual painful but simple story and the result is a touching but difficult movie to watch. A women suicides by planting her car on the tracks in front a speeding railroad train. Her 11-year-old son ( Miles Heizer) barely escapes from the car. The train engineer (Kevin Bacon) and his wife (Marcia Gay Harden) who just found out that she has metastatic cancer take in the young boy into their childless home. They both bond with him and for a moment in time, some good has come from all this tragedy. Not bad for the directing debut of Allison Eastwood who is the daughter of Clint. (2007)
