What if your son went missing for nine years, and after nine years he showed up at your front door? Well, this is what has been experienced by Michelle Pfeiffer, played as Beth, in a movie, 'The Deep End of The Ocean.' I purchased the DVD because I read the synopsis at the back cover, and it seemed to have an interesting premise. I can feel the stress of Beth when trying to locate and find his son. She's been trying hard and do all she can to find him, until she gives up and decides to move on with her life. What shocks me is that during that time when his child is missing, she blames her oldest son for that and neglects her oldest son, Vincent. But Vincent is a strong boy, and actually he cares for his family, especially his mother and his younger brother, Sam.
The film runs about one hour and 45 minutes and I think this is not a disappointing movie. Indeed, it's a very touching drama that I even shed tears. It's a very good movie, and great performances by the actors, especially Pfeiffer. Jonathan Jackson also plays very well in this movie. The film is adapted from a novel by Jacquelyn Mitchard, and I think I would love to purchase the novel as well, for it has a wonderful story. The DVD has theatrical trailer and interactive menus. Audio and image are all sharp and I have no problem playing it in my DVD. Great film!
