I did not want to see this film, mainly because Nicolas Cage is starring in it and I have not seen one good film that he stars in lately. However, my friend assured me that he has heard good things about it and he has read the book that the film is based on. Anyway, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this movie, it was great and I highly recommend seeing it at the theaters. It was really nice to see the old Nicolas Cage, he was really good in this film. It reminded me why Cage used to be so likable, his lack of cynicism and boyish charms definitely won me over in this film. I also liked the story, even though it was quite sad and gloomy. This film manages to be a lot of things all at once and it does it very well. Overall, I thought this film was quite good and I am glad that I got to see Nicolas Cage at his best once more.
