What an awesome movie, Very Inspirational. Leonardo is great even in his younger day movies. De Niro & Caprio's performance is OUTSTANDING!!! It's an amazing film, with an amazing cast and the true story of Tobias Wolff who came from an abusive home... verbally and physically, but let that be the fuel that drove him to be a successful literature professor. You don't always have to be a product of your environment... he proved everyone wrong. Definitely a must watch! thanks my friend filmfan for the stagevu link...

Excellent movie! leonardo dicaprio did some amazing acting, even though he was playing a character a few years younger than he was, and he got everything perfect from the facial expressions to the tone of his voice. Also very touching and quite emotional, 9.5/10.

Based on a true story. When you read this, it brings about a curiosity that strikes the brain. What do I have in common with it? Anybody that watches this movie can single handedly pick out something that hits home. Guarenteed! DeNiro plays a different side that comes off surprising. DiCaprio had already made a name for himself, Gugino, Maguire and Dushku were interesting. Makes me want to read the book. Watch this movie!

Leonardo Dicaprio is my favorite actor and recently I've been searching for movies of his that I haven't seen. As usual his performance is outstanding and unbelievable... another must see.

I like Robert Deniro movies. This movie unfortueately is watched more by the victims than the abusers. Abusers should see what it is outside the box. Unfortuneately it is usually too late and people die; let alone have to live with the memories.

A powerful and moving drama in a 50's small-town setting. This film benefits from its excellent cast, and the superb performance from a young Leonardo DiCaprio. Excellent performance by Robert De Niro and Ellen Barkin. The leads make their characters and their relationships believable and moving. An amazing film that captures a story of step-father and son like no other, it is a very realistic film. This is one of the best films of the 90's and should not be missed. Worth a watch... 10/10

A cruelly, vicious and brutal performance from De Niro. Pulls no punches, I think it's one of his best...

Pretty good movie. The first time I seen it when I was like 12 years old I thought it was amazing, but now that I watched it as an adult I'd give it a 7.5/10 ... deff worth a watch :)

Very good movie with strong performance by the actors. Leonardo DiCaprio's n Robert De Niro's acting was award worthy. This has got 2 be one of De Niro's finest performance. I dono y nobody recognized it wen the movie was released. The scene wit De Niro n DeCaprio in the car n wen De Niro teaches him 2 fight was great. Very emotional at times n worth watching.
