Kevin Bacon, an indispensable fixture of American cinema over the past 20
years, delivers his finest performance in The Woodsman, a harrowing and moving
tale of one man`s attempt to re-enter society.
After twelve years in prison, Walter (Bacon) arrives in an unnamed city and mostly keeps to himself. A quiet, guarded man, Walter finds unexpected solace from Vickie (Kyra Sedgwick), a tough-talking woman who promises not to judge him for his history. A convicted sex offender, Walter is warily eyed by his brother-in-law (Benjamin Bratt), shunned by his sister, lives in fear of being discovered at work, and is hounded by a suspicious local police officer, Detective Lucas (Mos Def). Walter cannot escape his past, but he has a chance to avoid what many believe will be his inevitable future.
The Woodsman is an unnerving, ultimately hopeful portrait of compulsion and hard-won redemption with a central performance that has united critics and viewers alike in praise and admiration.
Production Year: 2004
