Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to watch it. Furthermore, I was really curious to see a movie directed by the great Tommy Lee Jones.

"An introspective movie about miserable people, in a miserable place, living a miserable life, with unreachable dreams but with a chance of redemption and turning over the table. Kinda.
