Now, speaking of this film's cast alone - the casting director should get an award for outstanding cast! Meryl Streep blooms and ultimately becomes her character (no surprise here, she is after all Meryl Streep); David Straithairn never ceases to surprise you; Kevin Bacon is seductively evil (which is no great stretch, yet deserves praise); John C. Reily and Joseph Mazzello add charm and evelop the roles into smooth rounded edges, making for an enjoyable romp through the river wild.
