The Woodsman

The Woodsman

Directed by Nicole Kassell

After twelve years in prison, Walter arrives in an unnamed city, moves into a small apartment across the street from an elementary school, gets a job at a lumberyard, and mostly keeps to himself. A quiet, guarded man, Walter finds unexpected solace from Vickie, a tough-talking woman who promises not to judge him for his history. But Walter cannot escape his past. A convicted sex offender, Walter is warily eyed by his brother-in-law, shunned by his sister, lives in fear of being discovered at work, and is hounded by a suspicious local police officer, Detective Lucas.

After twelve years in prison, Walter (Kevin Bacon) arrives in an unnamed city, moves into a small apartment across the street from an elementary school, gets a job at a lumberyard, and mostly keeps to himself. But Walter cannot escape his past...

Cast: Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick

Very gripping film, really drew me in. Didn't expect to have that much empathy for him.

A difficult story rendered meaningfully. Kevin Bacon 'done good.'
