I think this is one of those films that is light and playful, but also a bit dark and profound. It really satisfies and holds your attention from start to finish. Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon are delightful, as are Joan Allen (the most captivating of the characters), and Jeff Daniels. It certainly holds it's place amongst films that are brilliant and eye opening. It reminded me of a couple of books I read in school; The Giver and A Wrinkle in Time. It's an original in every sense of the word and one that doesn't get old.
