In the Valley of Elah review

70075066.jpg

The director of Crash makes up for some of the manipulation of that movie with this effort(despite its awful title). Tommy Lee Jones notches a great performance, Charlize Theron is at the top of her game, and Susan Sarandon has her best performance in years, and nearly singlehandedly brought me to tears. The rest of the cast including Jason Patric and James Franco are pitch perfect. A military intrigue film as good as A Few Good Men, this deserves your attention despite it being somewhat overlooked Oscar time. Rating: 8/10
