In a cinema year rife with big-budget Oscar bait (A Beautiful Mind, Monster's Ball, Gosford Park), this arrestingly realistic drama was somewhat glossed over, except where the critics were concerned. Based on the André Dubus story "Killings," In the Bedroom tells the story of the Fowler family -- mother Ruth (Sissy Spacek), father Matt (Tom Wilkinson) and their only son, Frank (Nick Stahl), who is headed for college in the fall. In the meantime, Frank is deep in a romance with Natalie (Marisa Tomei, who picked up another Oscar nom for her terrific performance), a mother of two who is ten years his senior and not-quite divorced from the possessive Richard (William Mapother). Ruth makes no secret of her disapproval, while Matt prefers to let Frank make his own decisions and, if need be, mistakes. Everything unravels when Richard finds Frank at Natalie's house one day and kills him in a fit of jealous rage. In the wake of Frank's violent and untimely death, everyone connected to him begins to grieve in his or her own fascinating, if often self-destructive way, and it soon becomes obvious that Frank was the only thing holding Matt and Ruth's marriage together. The plot could easily have loped along at a TV-Movie-of-the-Week level, but amazing, tortured performances from a fantastic cast elevate the film to the status of a must-see drama.
