"Saw Mystic River. My thoughts: superb acting by Tim Robbins and Sean Penn. Sean penn played type, Tim robbins did not so more kudos to Tim Robbins. Sean Penn's scene w/ his father in law might have been the best or when he explains the look like she's never going to see you again. Kevin Bacon was leaden and his subplot was absurd. no explanation of why we care about his retarded mute wife or why he went to college and abandoned the neighborhood. Laura Linney's ode de Macbeth at the end was out of nowhere and totally misplaced."
