Could it happen to you?

As much as I want to see Reservation Road — and boy do I love the cast — there is a part of me that is worried it might be just a little bit depressing. I haven’t yet read the book but the concept — two innocent families caught in a brain chilling tragedy that really, could happen to anyone — makes me just a bit anxious. After all, this is a movie with no monsters or crazy special affects. It’s a simple drama full of raw, pure emotion exploring the topics of revenge and forgiveness and just how far we, as humans are capable of going with each.

Link here for even more Jennifer Connelly.
