In the Bedroom (2001)

Todd Field directs Sissy Spacek, Tom Wilkinson and Marisa Tomei in this drama where a couple deal with the violent death of their teenage son.

Patient, sensitive and consummately acted… until the third act. The extended finale is still as finely crafted but feels like a tonal shift too far, ultimately unsatisfying when compared to what has gone on before.
