The Reckoning is a fantastic film that embraces all the aspects of a period piece, a drama, and a mystery. The plot is a beautiful mixture of good vs. evil, man vs. man, man vs. himself, and man vs. God. The younger style of Bettany mixed with the classic styles of Dafoe and Cox mirror the plot's various themes. Cinematography (not just what we see, but what the characters see) contributes tremendously to the heart of the story. The basis of the film, "The truth shall come to light," will leave you with a sense of needed self-discovery and/or reconciliation to a new breed of life. I hope all who see this work of art will experience, as displayed in the film, a "Reckoning" of their own.
