I found this movie while searching through a reduced DVD bin. But once I saw Vincent D&#39;onofrio in the lead I knew I would not be disappointed; and of course I wasn&#39;t.<br/><br/>He is one of the most talented and underrated actors gracing the indie screen today. Although he has had several big budget roles (MIB-The Cell to name a couple) he is a character actor and does extremely well with character driven films. <br/><br/>I&#39;d never heard of Robert E. Howard until I watched the WWW and I couldn&#39;t think of a better person to introduce him to me than Mr. D&#39;onofrio. The way he portrays his tortured existence and his need for companionship and acceptance was done with such brilliance and conviction, you can really appreciate how much Bob Howard lived inside his own head and yet longed to be part of the world around him.<br/><br/>Renee Zellweger also turned in a notable performance as Novaline Price. She skillfully portrayed the love, hope and irritation she often had for Bob. Together D&#39;onofrio and Zellwegger not only showed the pain of unrequited love, but the richness of friendship.<br/><br/>I recommend this film to anyone looking for great acting, wonderful cinematography and a delightful score. Curl up, turn the lights down, and enjoy. I promise the characters will stay with you long after the final credits.

This is an easy vote. A real, well acted old time story of star crossed loves. Cutting edge acting by Vincent D&#39;Onofrio as Robert and his girl Rene Z. An emotional, tender, and heartbreaking story. Both actors pull out your emotions and put them through the wringer. Beautifully filmed and the music fits the mood. Vincent was perfect. His intense face, which he uses as an emotional barometer, captures and relays the tortures Robert E Howard experienced. It is how films used to be - memorable. This was Rene Z&#39;s first serious work, and I will say she has never come close again in touch the emotional triggers although she is big box office. Her thanks to Vincent on receiving her first Academy awards speaks volumes &quot; Thank you Vincent for teaching me how to work.&quot; They were a lovely team together with a special bond both actors created together. I did not want to leave the characters and return to reality. In closing, this &quot;little movie&quot; budget wise and distribution wise, is actually a far greater achievement then it&#39;s modest budget could foresee. This film should have been dubbed as one of the greats instead of shelved and forgotten.

Before I saw this movie a few years ago, I had never heard of &quot;Robert E Howard&quot;. Since then, I&#39;ve educated myself on who Robert E Howard was...and who Novalynn was. He was extraordinary and she drank him up. It&#39;s incredible that someone took her book and made a movie out of the story. Even more incredible is how perfectly it was all orchestrated. The characters were fantastic (Especially Vincent DiOnofrio). The script was great, the filmwork was beautiful, the timing was right on. I will never grow tired of this movie. And I&#39;ll continue to turn it onto whoever comes over to my house and hasn&#39;t seen it yet. The Whole Wide World is a masterpiece!
