Just saw Flashbacks

I saw this movie yesterday, with my reluctant husband! Reluctant because he likes action movies (James Bond is his style) and I like art house dramas and it was my turn to choose. I choose it because it was given an excellent review on the Good Morning Show. I'd like to say that we BOTH enjoyed this movie. Basically, its a story about forgiving yourself but it's not soppy with it. It was well acted, and despite Daniel Craig portraying the adult and very self possessed Joe, very well, I still felt some sympathy for him. I don't want to give too much away but I really enjoyed Joe's interactions with his assistant -I think she was called Ophelia -and although I would have liked to see more of him in the movie (although beleive me, you do see MORE of him) the flashback to his youth was well done and was what the movie was about. I was drawn into the events as they unfolded and to me, that's what a good movie is all about.
