I loved everything about this film. Without revealing anything, the ending leaves simply stunned if it captures the poetry behind. Maguire and Gyllenhaal are fantastic in their parts. Touching as few, I believe that in the face of certain emotions, director, screenplay and various technicalities fade into the background.

Good story but I really dislike Tobey Maguire.
