The accidental death of the older son of an affluent family deeply strains the relationships among the bitter mother, the good-natured father, and the guilt-ridden younger son.
The last film to win an Academy Award for Best Picture without a Best Film Editing nomination until Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014), over thirty years later.
Conrad "Con" Jarrett:
... and I know why she never came to the hospital! She was busy going to goddamn Spain and... and... goddamn Portugal! Why should she care if I'm hung up by the balls out there?
When Conrad lies down on his bed before calling Jeannine, there is a bulletin board behind his head, on the wall above the bed. The bulletin board is missing in all other bedroom scenes, both before and after this scene. Also, taking these scenes at face value, Conrad's bedroom is maybe 5 or 6 yards wide with windows on opposite walls. None of the front or back exterior shots of the house show a space that could include this room configuration.
