Format: DVD
****

This is a special film that I would recommend for adults. It is about the difficult recovery of the Vietnam veteran community in a rural area of the Pacific Northwest. They live isolated and impoverished lives, trapped in the past. When one of them, played by Danny Glover, takes care of a friend's young daughter, everything changes, and not only does Danny Glover's character begin to learn to love again, but the entire community comes closer.

I would not recommend this film for children, because I think that the adult themes of war recovery, war trauma, and intense grief would be too much for them; probably over 18 would be best for this film. It is not depressing, as you might think reading the synopsis, but is an inspirational film about interdependency, love, and forgiveness. It is not a "happy" film either, though. I would best call it a deep, poignant, and intense film that is an excellent use of the viewer's time. It would be good for an evening when you want to be moved and drawn into something to forget about your own problems or to help you deal with your own grief.

The acting is remarkable, the scenery lovely, and the young actress---Zoe Weizenbaum---who plays the friend's daughter---is perfect for her role. Danny Glover is marvelous, as is Linda Hamilton. An unlikely grouping of actors in a gem of a movie. You won't regret watching it.

I recently saw Missing in America at the Monaco International Film festival in which it won Best Film! I just ordered it on DVD so I can give them to my friends and family. I think everyone should see this film. It an excellent independent film debut for a truly wonderful director, Gabrielle Savage Dockterman. Danny Glover, Linda Hamilton, David Strathairn, and Ron Perlman are excellent. Zoe Weizenbaum is a wonderful new actress and did a great job. I hope everyone can see this film with someone they love.

I can't add much to what already has been said. But, I found it funny, sad, tragic, and finally, uplifting. Vietnam still affects everyone it touches, and this film does just that. If you watch it, you will be affected. A good movie overall...

Format: DVD
Danny Glover depicts a haunted Vietnam vet who's secluded himself in the Pacific Northwest. When a man formerly under his command shows up with his half Vietnamese daughter, Linny, and entrusts her fate to him, he's reluctant, but he and the girl gradually develop a relationship and also begin to interact with the community around them, including even more isolated Vietnam vets.

This film doesn't have the ending I'd hoped for--in either the theatre or the alternate ending. As a former Vietnam vet I worked with once said, "It ain't right, but it's real."

That's the way I felt when I finished this film.

If you can watch this movie and not learn something about the nature of human attachment or how we grieve, you have lost something precious that every feeling person should possess. Even if a few of the characters seem unlikely or contrived, this is a beautiful and affecting movie.

This movie can be a useful tool for anyone who is struggling with the after effects of trauma. That would include those who have been traumatized through physical/sexual assault, child abuse or through war. Because of the potential emotional impact of this movie on these groups, anyone in counseling should consider consulting with their counselor prior to viewing.

After I finished viewing this movie for the first time I had to take a few minutes to compose myself. I was so deeply moved by the characters who were vividly represented as the plot progressed. The last few scenes left me reaching for the tissue box again and again. While I originally thought it was going to be yet another predictible vet story, I was extremely pleased and surprised to see that FINALLY the screenwriters of this movie had the sense to through in a few twists. I never could have guessed the twists and turns that unfolded, it is pure brilliance on part of the writers.

Light the fire, curl up underneath a warm blanket and clear your night for this movie will bring you to a new place.

For those who wrote reviews claiming none of what happened in this film is truth I have one thing to say. Their heads are deeply buried in sand. I personally know many young men who returned from this war not only bearing terrible physically injuries, but horrible mental ones. I suspect these same people who think this way deny anything is happening in Irag and that for those that have died a multituted are retuning home mutilated and mentally beyond hope. The saying is all to true "When we do not learn from our past mistakes we are bound to repeat them." WAKE UP!
