Ok, the performance of Hoffman is superb. the story is so boring... i like adults movies, but this one? there is not a piece of color in it! and that character, so gay and oximoron! that�s a good performance, because you really hate the dude. the story is slow... sad. depressing. Not a good movie. Not as bad as 28 days, but definetly, not Oscar Worthy. I don�t comprendo why it was nominnated!
