This was such a good film and it had great acting from all the cast. The story was so heartbreaking. Even at the end I didn’t feel happy I just felt really sad. At the end, I was expecting the guy that shot his wife to try and kill him or something but that didn’t happen. It was a good surprise that it didn’t happen, though. The ending was just beautiful with him and his daughter. It has a lot in common with Rocky, but it’s got some differences too. I think it’s one of Gyllenhaal’s best performances.
