Mystic River (2003)
Tim Robbins is mentally handicapped and may have killed somebody's kid. Sean Penn yells a lot in the street. Eventually Tim Robbins probably has to be put down, like Lenny in Of Mice and Men. Lots of intense feeling, lots of yelling—and I think there might be some kind of code being observed, like a code of the streets, or some kind of gang's code, or a code of brothers. Everyone is very unhappy. The kid who got killed might have been a sweet teenaged girl. The whole damned thing is a goddamned shame.
