An American Tragedy
Most mass shooters target their loved ones or have a history of family violence.
Had the shooter been black, Mexican or Muslim, we'd be hearing a lot more than just "thoughts and prayers."
With Keira Knightley as the muse, Joe Wright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard transform Tolstoy's classic into a film that is emotionally wrenching, even as it turns the world it depicts inside out.
Filled with superb nature writing as well as utterly original characters and a plot as compelling as a Lee Child tale, Man in the Woods is a book poised to take its place as an American classic.
