Two-Time Oscar-Nominee Nick Nolte stars as Ray Cooke, a disheveled, grumpy high school umpire who forms an unlikely friendship with a troubled teenager, Dave Tibbel (Morgan), after he catches him vandalizing his home. A straightforward exchange - if Dave repairs the damage, Ray won't call the cops - becomes an ever increasingly personal relationship and enables Dave to cope with his own distant father (Oscar-Nominee Timothy Hutton). As they grow more dependent on each other, Ray asks Dave to go to his 40th high school reunion and pretend to be his son, a benevolent act of deception that winds up opening unexpected dimensions in the two men.

No better performance in 2006. Nolte held me tranfixed.
Ray asks the kid if he thought he was happy. No I am miserable.
When you reach the bottom than you know what your missing in your life.
Ray has cancer, no family and still Ray will reach out till he has
been been beaten down so far and missing so much that its time to go.
It's the backroads American story the one the ads on TV will never tell you.
The rest of the cast is excellent. Everyone does a great job. The picture
centers around Nolte. Like most of us his life is a little Off The Black.
It has a lot of heart and shines a light on the fears and uncertainty we all face in life.
The dynamics of the young and old with Trevor Morgan and Nick Nolte are refreshing. Love their chemistry.
And I gotta say...Nolte cracks me up in this movie.
