A History Of Violence

I just finished watching this movie about "a bloody self defense incident involving a mild mannered man brings his hidden past back to haunt him and his family." Grade: Slightly above average Odd Scene: The wife surprises her husband with a cheerleader outfit Violence Level: Mucho Oscar consideration: William Hurt was nominated for Best Supporting Actor (but he appears for only 15 minutes in the film). Confused: I could have sworn the lead actress in the film was Diane Lane (from "Unfaithful" ) but it was actually Maria Bello who I have never heard of.
