First of all Simon and Garfunkel's song is one of my all time favorites, love that song! I am also a huge Jeff Bridges fan, love the way he delivers a line. So, I went into this with high expectations and for me, it did not disappoint. I thought the writing was very good and the performances excellent with a nice little twist towards the end. Watch it and see what you think!
