In their childhood, Jimmy Markham, Dave Boyle and Sean Devine had one life changing event. While playing street hockey, the boys were approached by two men who were posing as policemen but were actually pedophiles. They ordered Dave Boyle into their car and kept him in a hidden room in the woods while they acted on their perversions.      The story progresses to current day when Jimmy Markham is preparing for his middle daughter's first communion.

Mystic River is a haunting and tragic movie that is extremely well written, acted, and directed. At its core it is a murder mystery, but one that is shrouded by a tragedy that befalls the three main characters as young boys.

Jimmy, the "hard case" of the bunch entices his pals to write their name in wet cement where the sidewalk is being repaired. Two men posing as cops drive up and abduct the boy …

The first thing I would like to recommend about Mystic River is that you watch it twice before coming to any conclusions.

I haven't been this overwhelmed …

Again, I haven't read the book however the Movie does it all. I am sure there are things we all wish to forget. Moments in time in which our lives and the lives of others are altered by one singular movement, one phrase, or that one hockey shot that was just out of reach. Nothing is more true when it comes to the lives of Jimmy (Sean Penn), Sean (Kevin Bacon) and Dave (Tim Robbins). Mystic River is an emotional and amazing film about the reconciliation of three friends and their wives by the tragic …

Mystic River will either leave you in the dust, and perhaps for some, leave you asking why.      The film rolls with remnants and echoes of other films I own. It has the pacing of "In the Bedroom", and towards the end, the same tragic spiral down effect of "Requiem for a Dream." It's plotted in such a way that we are given one false clue after another (as in Bloodwork) keeping you on the edge of conclusion until we are at the last moment given a huge reveal that shatters …
