| If not love...then what?
Walked into the film with no expectations or knowledge of what it was about, except that it starred Gibson and Penn.

Walked out of the film blown away. The script, cast (each and every one of them), the story... all beautifully portrayed.

Though-provoking, heart-wrenching and inspiring.
