"One of the year's ten best!"

Richard Schickel, Time Magazine.

After twelve years in prison, Walter arrives in an unnamed city, moves into a small apartment across the street from an elementary school, gets a job at a lumberyard, and mostly keeps to himself. A quiet, guarded man, Walter finds unexpected solace from Vickie, a tough-talking woman who promises not to judge him for his history. But Walter cannot escape his past. A convicted sex offender, Walter is warily eyed by his brother-in-law, shunned by his sister, lives in fear of being discovered at work, and is hounded by a suspicious local police officer, Detective Lucas. After befriending a young girl in a neighborhood park, Walter must also grapple with the terrible prospect of his own reawakened demons. -- Newmarket Films, 2004, USA.

Starring Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Mos Def, David Alan Grier, Michael Shannon, and Benjamin Bratt.

Directed by Nicole Kassell.
