Clint Eastwood’s Mystic River

Classic Film Night

Mystic River follows the entangled fates of three boyhood friends, Jimmy, Sean and Dave, who grow apart after a childhood tragedy.

Years later, Jimmy (Sean Penn) is an ex-con whose daughter is killed. Now a homicide detective, Sean (Kevin Bacon), is investigating the murder, and Dave (Tim Robbins) was the last person to see her alive. Not content with the official investigation, Jimmy conducts his own investigation through his contacts, ready to take the law into his own hands.

The film was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Supporting Actor. Sean Penn won Best Actor and Tim Robbins won Best Supporting Actor, making Mystic River the first film to win both awards since Ben-Hur in 1959.
