    Loved the movie. I am such a Clint fan, all they have to do is point the camera at him and I am happy. It was a good twist for me that when he did go to confession, it wasn't some horrendous war crime that he needed absolution from but rather his failed relationship with his sons, that caught me off guard and gave Clint an added human element to his complex character. His evolving compassion for the neighbors was well done and the message is one of unity , not any racism.

    I thought the next door daughter acted well too.

      If you saw his introduction of Morgan Freeman at the Kennedy Center Honors it's not a rumor. He was reading his few lines off a card and stumbled over most of it. He does have something lined up in Africa but I doubt it will happen.
      Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

        He plans to continue directing and producing, but not acting. He is not planning to act in his new film about Nelson Mandela (with Morgan Freeman in the title role).
