Reign Over Me
When a man who has failed to recover from the grief of losing his family in the tragedy of September 11, 2001 (Adam Sandler) has a chance run in with an old college roommate who has since become a doctor (Don Cheadle), the painful healing process slowly begins. Liv Tyler, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Saffron Burrows co-star in a film directed by Mike Binder.
When one thinks of Adam Sandler, a serious drama does not come to mind. In this movie Adam plays a very intense role and he does an excellent job in his portrayal as does Don Cheadle in his part.
The story takes an in-depth look at one man’s denial of reality after he loses his family on 9-11 and his friend tries to help him recover. At times while watching this gripping drama, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the theather. Even though it was well done, this is not a family film. Due to the subject matter discussed and emotional content in this movie it would not be appropriate for the family.
