(es) wrote: Thanks to some highly realistic performances from not only Ralph Fiennes and John Turturro, but the brilliant work of all actors involved help pull Redford's out of a rather mediocre "by-the-numbers" conventional movie to something with far greater weight. Mira Sorvino gives a particularly strong standout performance.
