To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a vey nice cast, I still wanted to check it out. Basically, it was a decent story but, like I said before, the main attraction was the cast (Joaquin Phoenix, Billy Crudup, Liv Tyler, Jennifer Connelly). Back then, they were all very young, their stars were rising and it was pretty neat to see them together, plus, they all gave some decent performances. The best was obviously Joaquin Phoenix. Such a talented actor and I’m really glad is back from his fake retirement. On the other hand, his character was the most developed so he definitely had more to chew on than his colleagues. Still, even though the story was intriguing, it was still nothing really amazing. In fact, it was pretty much like the title. In my opinion, it is a pretty lame title and during the whole thing I couldn’t help thinking ‘Who care about those f*cking Abbotts?!?’. Like I said before, the cast was really good but they deserved a better story all together in my opinion. Still, I thought it was a decent drama and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
