Co-written by Steven Fechter, the original script won first place at the Slamdance Screenplay Competition in 2001. Kevin Bacon plays Walter, a child molester who gets out of prison after serving a 12-year sentence. He returns to his old town and tries to start over by working at a woodyard. Fortunately, his brother-in-law (Benjamin Bratt) helps him get a place to live. He even strikes up a relationship with local gal Vickie (Bacon's real-life wife, Kyra Sedgwick). However, Walter still struggles with his past and the suspicions of co-worker Mary-Kay (Eve) and Detective Lucas (Mos Def). The Woodsman premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004 as part of the dramatic competition. Andrea LeVasseur, RoviRead Less

I think this movie was a bit of a 'sleeper' with not enough advertising. It should have been a top-grossing movie.
Kevin Bacon plays a man who was just released from prison. He was in prison for child molestation.
Now, you probably think, 'oh, cool, someone is going to kill him for revenge' or something like that.
You couldn't be further from the truth. This movie doesn't have any answers, but it does make you sympathize, as much as possible for a 'normal' person, with what the main character is going through to 'fight' his urges.
I never would have believed that a movie could make me sympathize with a child molester, but this wone does it.
This movie is not graphic in any way. It was not made to 'shock' the audience. It just addresses a very important aspect of the human psych.
