The Boys Are Back

If you're looking for a good stay at home, curl up on the couch kinda movie, THIS IS IT!!! This movie had me filled with emotion from the very beginning. This is an amazing story of an independent sportswriter who is struck with immense, life altering tradgedy.  This film is actually inspired by the true story of Australian Simon Carr. The Boys are Back DVD includes exclusive bonus features: a behind-the-scenes photographic tour and a visit with the three special guys who lived the story. Clive Owen does an amazing portrayal of this man who loses his wife and is suddenly left with the responsibility of raising two sons while dealing with his own grief. This movie made me laugh and cry (A LOT!). This is your only warning that you will need a box of tissues to get you through this one.  I watched this movie only days after the death of my sister-in-law's sister who had a 12 year old daughter.  So, already my emotions were a little crazy.  But, I really did enjoy this movie and I suspect you will too.  The Boys Are Back is available now from Miramax Films and Buena Vista Home Entertainment. See the trailer below for more details.
