Mystic River


Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Marcia Gay Harden


Clint Eastwood (Director) View All

Released: October 8th, 2003
Runtime: 2 hours, 18 minutes
A story about friendship and loyalty, guilt and vengeance, and the fateful affect the past has on the present.

Kevin Bacon plays the detective investigating the case, and his tough-talking banter with his partner (Laurence Fishburne) is definitely a high point for this particular film.
Perhaps the intention was to create his character as an antihero - unfortunately, I felt nothing towards him, neither positive nor negative. Likewise Bacon's character. Dull as dishwater.
Jimmy (Sean Penn)is now a small business owner content in his 2nd marriage (Laura Linney)and raising three daughters. Dave (Tim Robbins) is also married and raising a son.
