A good movie

Way before Leonardo DiCaprio became one of the most interesting actors of his generation thanks to a bunch of great movies directed by Martin Scorsese and even before he became a massive teen idol with ‘Titanic’, he actually got his breakthrough with this feature. On top of that, you didn't get only to see a very young DiCaprio shining here but also the great Robert De Niro (at the time, De Ni... read more

A excellent movie, however hard to watch. Leonardo Dicaprio plays young Jack, who's life is anything but a happy one. Robert De Niro plays Dwight boyfriend to Jacks mother, later husband. An abusive man overbearing and harsh. He makes everyones lives hell, this is a wonderful film. A great watch, you will cheer on Jack and hate Dwight.

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (222 movies items)

"29.5, PC Hyvät roolisuoritukset De Nirolta vittumaisena isäpuolena ja DiCaapriolta kasvukipuisena poitsuna. Myös tässä filmissä häiritsi jonkun verran kertojaäänet ja muut ysärin Hollywood-elokuvalle tyypilliset piirteet, vaikka elokuva itsessään on ihan toimivaa draamaa."

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (315 movies items)

"2.1. Robert on hyvin ilkeä isäpuoli, joka pakottaa nuoren Leon oppimaan elämästä. Elämä maistuu olohuoneeseen asti, ja DiCaprio todistaa olevansa hyvä lapsinäyttelijä. Jospa sitä tänä vuonna yrittäisi katsoa enemmän tällaisia kiinnostavia leffoja ja jättäisi kaiken maailman mikroaaltomassamurhat kokematta."
