Joshua Caldwell's “Mending the Line” is a touching and admirable film, even if it takes too long to do so. It has a lot of similarities to “Causeway,” which was a great film and won an Oscar. However, how generally that Jennifer Lawrence-Brian Tyree Henry film was seen may influence this PTSD show's review insight, "Mending" separates itself with its fine lead exhibitions, lived-in vibe, and "A River Runs Through It” style visual excellence.


Ike Fletcher (Brian Cox) is a long-term patient of Dr. Burke. He is a grumpy Vietnam War veteran in his 70s who has a slew of unresolved issues that have led to alcoholism, isolation, and a deep estrangement from his family. This ex-Marine's only delight throughout everyday life, fly fishing, is undermined after one too many stream-side mishaps force the specialist to let Ike know that he can never again fish alone. Even though the news doesn't go over well, the stubborn angler gets Harrison (Wes Studi), his old fishing buddy and owner of a fly shop, to join him. However, a foot injury quickly renders Harrison inactive.


Then there's Lucy, played by Perry Mattfeld, a former photographer who now works in the town library and reads to veterans in the VA hospital. She's a spooky, confined soul, the explanations behind which require a long time to be uncovered. Colter eventually comes to the library to look for fishing books, and Lucy and him form a tentative friendship. However, could Colter at any point keep his devils under control around her?


As a general rule, Stephen Camelio's content, delicate and persuading for what it's worth, endeavors to pack an excess of feeling, history and similitude into a moderately thin story. The end product is a two-hour movie that would have been better with some careful trimming, a faster pace, and less melodrama.
