It is pretty agonizing, honestly, to watch Trent essentially bully Duncan while Pam mostly just watches on, unfairly putting the weight of their dust-ups on Duncan.
Sam Rockwell does well enough playing the pivotal role which allows Duncan the wherewithal to grow but some of the situations that foment that growth are rather forced and not only is Rockwell's character's own need for growth rather clichd and yawnsome it also makes his mentoring young Duncan less ....
What I like: Rockwell's relationship with our protagonist, though very predictable, saved this film from being grating and the worst of the year.
