Even when we feel anger towards our parents, how do we make sure that we don't end up like them? That is the question at the heart of Affliction, a powerful tale set in a typical American small-town. Wade Whitehouse seems to have his life under control - a good job as the local sheriff, a kind-hearted girlfriend, and a respected place in the community. But under the surface, Wade is in turmoil, still troubled by the memory of growing up with his father, a foul-tempered drunk who still lives in town himself. Featuring screen legend James Coburn as Wade's father, and an unforgettable turn from Nick Nolte as Wade, this is a well-made and haunting piece of drama.
