Handsome Harry – Movie Review
An ex-Navy man carrying out the last wish of a dying shipmate renews contact with old friends to break the code of silence around a mysterious, long-buried crime
Handsome Harry is a movie that tries just a little bit too hard but having said that is actually a fairly interesting movie. It stars Jamey Sheridan and Steve Buscemi, Aiden Quinn, John Savage and Campbell Scott, which is a pretty impressive list. Jamey plays a guy who lives by himself in a small town and is kind of a loner. His son comes to visit him finally on his birthday and he leaves his son to be by the side of a dying Navy friend. It turns out that 30 years ago four guys perpetrated a heinous act on one of their friends, which you can kind of figure out fairly early on. The movie shows how the event affected each of their lives. It takes a little bit too long to get there but is actually sort of an interesting story and is really kind of sweet. Three and a half stars with some great performances.
