Aidan Quinn (Legends of the Fall,) and Rachel Griffiths (Six Feet Under) star in Plainsong, a Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation based on the novel by Kent Haruf. Tom Guthrie (Quinn), a high school history teacher, is faced with raising two young sons after his wife leaves him. Maggie Jones (Griffiths), a fellow teacher, tries to provide comfort and support. When a 17-year old student at their school becomes pregnant, their lives become interlocked with other seeming misfits in their small Colorado town. Gradually, they all grow to need and depend on each other, and ultimately, they build more than a community; they create a family.

Allen G (us) wrote: A genuinely horrifying look at recent political history. It's right up there with 'Standard Operating Procedure' as a must-watch look at America's role in recent conflicts and the ethical implications of it. Torture is obviously a difficult topic for a documentary film to address, given its dark nature, however, 'Taxi to the dark side' is unflinching and scrupulous with its look at the detainment and abuse of many completely-innocent people at the hands of the US Army.It will leave you sad and angry but it won't leave you in the dark on this important topic.

I'm actually had little experience with the flaming lips or their music (though I like what little I've heard), but even of it's own accord I found this movie incredibly entertaining. A unique mixture of avant garde & psychedelic sensibilities with classic sci-fi B movie camp.

Jackson despite suffering from a few tonal inconsistencies.Importantly, the film has some important things to say regarding the class divide between Affleck's lawyer and Jackson's struggling father, and the film also benefits from a fine supporting cast that includes Toni Collette, William Hurt, Sydney Pollack and Amanda Peet.The ending doesn't really do much with the message though, and the film finishes up feeling marginally incomplete.
