  • I caught this one on television, after not having seen it for a while, and despite knowing the story very well, it’s still a pleasant surprise to watch. The acting is absolutely outstanding, especially young Osment. I don’t ever recall seeing such a fine performance from a child actor.

    Bruce Willis is brilliant in this role, such a difference from those we’re used to seeing him in, and Toni Collette gives a very powerful portrayal of the bewildered mother.
    Even when you know the ending, the whole story is so well crafted and beautifully told, you can enjoy it all over and over.

    I don’t think M. Night has really done anything since that lives up to this, which is a shame as he is clearly a talented director and writer. This film is something special, so if you actually haven’t seen it, treat yourself! It’s worth every minute!
