This film has brilliant performances from all three of the actors, Maguire, who plays the veteran that struggles with PTSD, Gyllenhaal, the brother who stays home with his own regrets, and Portman, the woman torn between both men. Compared to the 2004 Danish film, this film isn’t as emotional, and the Danish film has more emotional performances. However, both films really go in-depth with the realities of PTSD and the effects it has on the family as a whole. The 2004 film also pushes the boundaries. It’s brilliant. This film leaves a hollow in it’s place, but even though it isn’t as good as the original version, it’s still worth a watch.
