The Messenger (Review)

Iraq War-at-home story is surprisingly compelling

"It must be hard for you," a woman apologetically tells the two officers (Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster) from the Army's casualty notification division who come to notify her of her husband's combat death in our ongoing wars in the Middle East. Her concern for their emotional well-being stuns them — they don't expect next-of-kin to care about anything other than their own loss. That concern is what makes 'The Messenger' so surprisingly compelling. Grade: B plus.
