Movie Haiku:After 12 years in prison, a sex offender faces the challenge of rebuilding his life under the harsh scrutiny of family members, co-workers, & policemen. Bacon does an extraordinary job (wounded, sad, & afraid of his own shadow), while Kasselís camera disturbingly captures how vulnerable children are to adult predators.
