Mystic River

Rating = B

The movie is fine in Eastwood's minimalistic way (which is nice compared with the apparently Hollywood alternative of too much action). My wife thought the child actors weren't very good and could use a lot more direction than Eastwood may give his already capable adult actors; she also thought the editing was a little awkward in a couple of places. I didn't have trouble with either editing or the child actors. It was a good story well told and acted (by the adult actors).
