    Fun! Good movie, great group! I wish I could have stayed for the discussion afterwards, but I had to run. Next time!

    It was very suspenseful. Al Pacino, Robin Williams, and Hilary Swank all played excellent roles. Even cops are human and make mistakes, just like the rest of us.

    Unfortunately, I can't attend the movie (will be screening other movies for a local film festival), but will go to Winfield Grill a little after 9 to see if anyone is still there.
