I have to say, Empire Falls with Ed Harris and Paul Newman is one of the most enjoyable, albeit long, movies I have seen in a very long time. Paul Newman's character is a bitter yet witty old man who is Ed Harris' father. Ed Harris does what Ed Harris does best. He plays a trustworthy father with morals and intelligence. And the "Hoff" plas a Boston playboy. The plot is still unraveling as I am only a couple hours into a 4 hour saga, and don't let that scare you off.
Trust me. Watch this movie.
You'll really enjoy it.
