I don’t think that this is the best film he’s done – but this is a pleasant little film. Mr. Eastwood’s character is asked by an old friend to locate and return his son – who is somewhere in Mexico. It’s a road picture. Old man , teenage Mexican. The kindness of strangers also figures in this film in the Senora who most graciously feeds them. My favorite line is ” I can’t cure OLD”. I don’t agree with his politics – but even in advanced age – Mr. Eastwood is a fine actor and director.

Gran Torino is one of my favorite Clint Eastwood movies. I also liked The Changeling. This one falls a bit behind those 2 for me. It really is a love story – not what you would expect from promo clips. The tsunami scene in the beginning is quite masterful, but maybe a bit much for those shaken by current events.
