Movie Recommendation for the week Feb 9 2008 - Feb 15 2008

Reign Over Me (2007)

Cast - Adam Sandler, Don Cheadle, Jada Pinkett Smith, Liv Tyler

Plot Outline - A man who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City runs into his old college roommate. Rekindling the friendship is the one thing that appears able to help the man recover from his grief.

Why To Watch - For Adam Sandler, in a never seen before serious role and believe it or not he is amazing in serious roles too. Don Cheadle gives yet another brilliant supporting performance.

This film focuses on the real Americans, the past generation, no stereotypes or Racism just people who have come together and realized the true meaning of life. This film is about loss and coping. Instead of picking on Psychiatry, it defines it, not as someone who heals you magically, but rather through the necessity of talking out your feeling to an impartial someone you can trust will not judge you, but rather will guide you through your thoughts. This movie is all round amazing!
