Yikes

The Reel of the week is "IN THE BEDROOM" with Sissy Spacek, Nick Stahl (Met him while an extra in "Man Without a Face") and Tom Wilkinson , who was so compelling in this role. 
Nick Stahl plays Frank Fowler the son of Ruth (Sissy Spacek) and Matt (Tom Wilkinson) Fowler a Doctor and Chorus teacher living in Camden Maine. Frank is spending his last summer in Maine with his parents before he goes off to college. While home he meets Natalie, an older, separated mother of two, played by Marisa Tomei. They fall into a heated , summer love affair which spirals into devastating tragedy for all involved.

No spoilers, but I will say : "Didn't see that coming"! This is definitely not a date movie or a let's go out for an ice cream  after this movie. But it was thought provoking and disturbing. I would recommend seeing it at least once.
My only complaint is wondering when Hollywood will conquer the Maine accent. Some of them were horrible and a little distracting. Come on it's easier then a Russian accent . But at least they actually came to Maine, I'd recognize Old Orchard Beach anywhere.  Fa shuwa Ayuh!
