The film is told in flashbacks, and by the end, when they show the scene with the bus, it's probably the most nerve-wrecking goose-bump emotional scene ever filmed. Unless you have no soul, you'll be be bawling your eyes out. I thought it was a beautiful film before, but now that I have two little daughters of my own, the film is oh so much harder to watch. I couldnt even imagine how I'd feel i... read more

" A small Canadian town is left emotionally reeling when a school bus has a fatal accident resulting in the loss of several of the local children. An out of town lawyer, driven by his failure to protect his own daughter from the devastation of drug addiction, tries to convince the towns people to sue for a big settlement. However, with the class action suit depending on the few kids who did survive, one of the primary (and potentially hopeful) witnesses, a now paralyzed 15 year old once buddin"

"Probably Atom Egoyan's most accessible film. It leaves the stinger in and keeps pumping venom. Faint, barely audible pain cinema. "

"Directed by Atom Egoyan What a touching and truly 'remarkable' gem from '97, by acclaimed director Atom Egoyan, it's not exactly the film that put him on the map, but it is the film that put him on the world map! Adapted from the novel by Russell Banks, banks actually not only approved of Egoyan's adaptation, but has actually been quoted as stating that he believes it to be better than his book in certain regards. This film went on to become a 'huge' commercial success when it was released and "
