No anticipation?

I think it looks great.
Raven haired Linda and her school mate Linnea are studying after school, when their desires take over and they kiss and strip off their clothes. They take turns fingering and licking one another's trimmed pussies on the desks, then fuck each other to intense orgasms with colorful vibrators.

The Most Hideous Poster of 2008?
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

My God, I'm an emotional wreck after seeing this film. It completely captures the emotional rollercoaster of the mother's plight and the lengths and obstacles faces in wanting her son back. Jolie shows so much in her reserved acting, and Clint is in top form here. A nice companion piece to L.A. Confidental in displaying the LAPD's corruption.

this is a great, overlooked movie. i'm not always into eastwood but it's hard not be amazed by how simultaneously caring and prolific he is. in this case the typical lengthiness works, because it's such a riveting story. it works like a long zoom-out, gradually exposing this epic manifestation of societal repression and power grabbing and incredible injustice all in the name of upholding this ugly and unquenchable ego... jolie totally deserves the nom. in fact i think the acting categories are the only thing the oscars got right this year (with the odd exception of course.) malkovich, feore, the captain, and amy ryan (who, yet again, i had to imdb to be sure it was her) are also so freakin good. even the kids are great. i should just say everyone in this movie is perfectly cast. and i love the look of the 20s and 30s.

A beautiful drama that like Mac said is a wonderful companion piece to 'LA Confidential'. Angelina has done her best performance to date with stirring frustration and complete and utter angish. They perfectly captured Los Angeles in the late 20's early 30's. A complete quest for honesty in a city filled with turmoil and disenchantment. Just about the most terrific film that packs a real emotional punch. Go and search this out.

completely agree with everybody here, great and engrossing film, it makes me so mad when there's abuse of power and I wanted to kill those doctors/nurses at the hospital, damn c***s.

in one of the extras i liked how the writer kept selling the script as a true story because if it was fiction it was just too much drama to be plausible.

highly recommended.

I liked it too but some performances was a bit wooden. Like they said their lines in long ass sentences. But maybe that was the thang back in the 1920's. But I believe that Jason Butler Harner who stole the show with his performance as a psychopath.
