Good storyline, wanes towards the end

A good storyline, with Richard Gere accidentally causing the death of his two best friends, and then trying to ease his guilt by providing everything he can for their daughter. However, the movie ends somewhat abruptly as if the writer ran out of lines.
A good storyline. Richard Gere has a lot of guilt but is not fully to blame the car crash is very vague as to what happened. were does the river come into it.& maybe the wrong side of the car that was hit?& the film end a bit too soon.
