Very Real Characters

The characters are very real,I know many people whose personalities suit the three main characters perfectly,it is an extremely realistic film which adds immensely to the drama.

so How can you not hate Robert DeNiro in this film? .... Brilliant script, exception acting and all too frightening reality.

It's sad but true...I still love it...

Now You're Talking!

Yes! This is what you slog through the mediocre movies for, those weary times when you're trying to get through an afternoon, hoping to at least come across a good scene or two, an interesting line of dialogue, a scenic view to take you out of your crowded apartment for a while. Because this, this is the kind of experience that finally makes it all worthwhile - a fast-paced, fascinating story with unbelievable characters, snappy patter, exciting scenes and some of the best acting you'll ever see. There's a reason Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio are stars and they tell you why right here. And, perhaps best of all, it's all true! It's great that writers can make up stories that grab you by the throat, pull you in and still have a hold on you even when it's all over; Dickens, Hemingway, King, O'Connor. How do they do it? But when it all actually happened, didn't spring from someone's vivid imagination but came from actual lived life - for me it adds an extra impact and somehow makes it more important. And in this case, it actually is a writer's story, the story of a writer, because "This Boy" is Tobias Wolff. I've never read anything by him, but you know what? Now I have to.

unceasing emotional bullying

It's the 1950's. Toby Wolff (Leonardo DiCaprio) is traveling around with his mother Caroline Wolff (Ellen Barkin) on her flight of fancy to find uranium. His father had left with his older brother. He's a rebellious troublemaker. In Seattle, Caroline hooks up with seemingly nice Dwight Hansen (Robert De Niro). They are getting married but he turns out to be a dominating abusive bully.

These are three terrific actors doing great work. I have trouble rooting for Toby. Leo's doing exceptional work and I can't put it down on him. De Niro is doing a nicer version of Cape Fear. I can't really pinpoint the issue but I think I need some humor. I need a break from the unceasing domination by Dwight. It feels oppressive and somewhat depressing. It wore me out.
