    When they were kids growing up together in a rough section of Boston, Jimmy Markum, Dave Boyle and Sean Devine spent their days playing stickball on the street, the way most boys did in their blue-collar neighborhood of East Buckingham. Nothing much out of the ordinary ever happened, until a moment's decision drastically altered the course of each of their lives forever. Twenty-five years later, the three find themselves thrust back together by another tragic event - the murder of Jimmy's 19-year-old daughter. Now a cop, Sean is assigned to the case and he and his partner are charged with unravelling the seemingly senseless crime. In the wake of the sudden and terrible loss of his child, Jimmy's mind becomes consumed with revenge - and his own plans to find the killer. Caught up in the maelstrom is Dave, now a lost and broken man fighting to keep his demons at bay. As the investigation creeps closer to home, his wife Celeste becomes consumed by suspicion and fear, while Jimmy's wife, Annabeth, draws her family tighter together in order to weather the storm.

    MYSTIC RIVER
    A film review by Steve Rhodes
    Copyright 2003 Steve Rhodes
    RATING (0 TO ****): *** 1/2
    MYSTIC RIVER is a crime drama that's got plenty of whodunit to it, but it is in the methodically laid out character studies that the movie soars. It is so filled with extraordinary performances in even the minor roles that you hardly know where to start in discussing it -- which is the same problem that Academy voters will have when it comes to choosing this year's Oscar nominations.

    Laura Linney, for example, has what, until almost the very end of the movie, appears to be a small, almost throwaway part as the wife of one the film's leads, played brilliantly by Sean Penn. But not long before the ending credits roll, she gives a dynamite short speech that shockingly explains the character whom we barely knew. Everyone in the story, based on Dennis Lehane's popular novel, has a world of hurt buried deep within them. During the movie, some of these wounds are revealed early, some later and some not at all.

    In his best job as a director since UNFORGIVEN, Clint Eastwood is truly masterful in the way he devises the scenes. The stunning end to the movie is made with two simple but powerful hand gestures between Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon.

    The movie starts in the past with an incident that forever traumatizes three 11-year-old boys, Jimmy, Sean, and most especially Dave. Tim Robbins (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION), in his performance ever, plays the adult Dave, who is so downtrodden and emotionally scarred that his face seems to be sinking into his skull. He might have a driver's license, but he's a mental cripple who isn't effectively much older than eleven. He is the world's best father to his son. In a touching piece of acting, Marcia Gay Harden plays Dave's wife. She supports him but doesn't trust him since she is effectively married to a minor. Penn, as Jimmy, Robbins and Harden all deserve Oscar nominations as does Eastwood.

    Someone is murdered -- you know who if you've seen the trailers -- which causes Sean (Kevin Bacon), a homicide detective, to go back to his old stomping grounds to investigate it. Sean has his own problems of which we only get hints. Laurence Fishburne is excellent as Whitey, Sean's partner, who provides some appreciated humor.

    The story keeps us guessing as it throws out leads, some of them bogus. At a certain point in the narrative, almost everyone in the audience suddenly guesses the who and why of the murder, but there is no letdown. The movie is more about the pain of the characters and how they deal with it. One thing is certain. You'll feel a lot more pleasure than pain. Watching this phenomenal film is such a joy since it reminds you how smooth and satisfying viewing a masterfully constructed motion picture can be.

    MYSTIC RIVER runs 2:20. The film is rated R for "language and violence" and would be acceptable for most teenagers.

    I have seen this movie on big screen. It is the most boring thing I have ever seen, and trust me I have seen lots of movies on big screen and off. I would not recommend anyone to spend good money to buy this movie. It might be good to help you fall asleep though
