Mystic River (2003)

Mystic River (2003, USA) C-137m. SCOPE ** D: Clint Eastwood. Starring Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Laurence Fishburne, Marcia Gay Harden, Laura Linney, Kevin Chapman, Tom Guiry, Eli Wallach. Downbeat crime drama about three childhood friends, who are reunited when Penn's daughter is found murdered in the park. Bacon, who is now a cop, investigates and Robbins, a victim of sexual abuse, may be among the suspects. Somber, conventional, deliberately paced drama, based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, buoyed by three strong performances, most notably Robbins'. He and Penn won Academy Awards.
