Katie Garvey:
Daddy, what's the greatest thing you ever saw?

Ben Garvey:
Greatest thing you ever saw. Umm. One time when I was a little boy, I was playing with my slingshot and I saw this Jaybird. I don't know why but I shot him.

Katie Garvey:
You killed a birdie?

Ben Garvey:
I didn't mean to. I don't even know why I shot at him, but I felt so bad, I started praying to God that he would come back. And all of a sudden the Jaybird woke up. He just flew away.

Katie Garvey:
God saved him?

Ben Garvey:
Yeah, I think so.

User Review

a haunting drama

Rating: 7/10

a psychological thriller that will make you think from the the
beginning to the end. although a bit slow in the first parts to the
middle, thats why its a psychological thriller, the climax to the end
compensated for it.

the lines are well delivered, a good script, all in all, a good movie.
the acting's pretty convincing, particularly the way the lead actor
tracks down the roots of his dilemma and the way he acted on it. i just
gave it a seven coz, as i have said, the first parts makes me sleepy.

just keep in mind that this in not for those who liked fast paced or
some such types of movies.
