Bobby Long a nice find (Scarlett Johanssen great)

Once again, I picked up a disc without really knowing much about it and certainly not knowing what to expect. And I found I had a thumbs up winner.

A Love Song for Bobby Long is a great movie. The marketing seems to want to make it seem darker than it is. If I had to compare it to something, I'd say it is somewhat similar to The Station Agent. In fact, if you liked that movie I think you would like Bobby Long.

Mind you, it's a drama and definitely has its dark tone. It's like The Station Agent in that it has a small film feel and is character driven. But the characters are wonderful and the performances are great (especially Scarlett Johanssen).
