The first scene in The Messenger shows us Ben Foster. He puts drops into his eyes, because a war wound has caused him a vision problem. As the drops cause tears, it looks from outside like a soldier is crying. But this particular soldier can’t cry, because it’s forbidden by the job he has to perform for the rest of the film.

Ben Foster is playing an army staff sergeant. His name is Will Montgomery and he was hurt in Iraq war and then got sent back to the US, where he now has to spend the rest of his enlistment (three months to be exact) in the "casualty notification team". This means he has to come to people’s houses to inform them their children or husbands were killed in Iraq. This is not a kind of job to desire, as it is hard to do, and it isn’t easy to watch as well, because the movie delivers such scenes respectfully and sensitively.

Montgomery has a partner. Capt. Tony Stone (Woody Harrelson) is a multiple-divorced recovering alcoholic, serious about the notification business and explains Montgomery its rules: just delivering the news, nothing else. No hugs, no cries, no staying for a cup of tea, no euphemisms like "passed away" or “gone" – nothing. Just expressing condolences, making sure there's nobody people want you to contact for them, and leaving. Tony Stone takes it as a military precision, and expects his new partner to do the same.

But their professionalism gets compromised on their some fourth visit, as Montgomery meets a young widow Olivia (Samantha Morton). He is crying, too, because those soldiers died in the same explosion that caused his injure. However, the film is not about Montgomery's relationships with Olivia, as you might have been expecting. It is more about separate emotional journeys of two partners and the way they find themselves true friends in spite of different attitudes and backgrounds.

The greatest scenes in the movie are notification scenes. The men meet all kinds of reactions, sincerely portrayed by both familiar and obscure actors. Steve Buscemi, for example, has the bright role of the soldier’s father. We understand so much about people’s backgrounds in only couple lines of dialogue and couple moments of screen time, that we feel sincere sympathy even though we never knew them or their lost children. The movie examines raw human emotions and does it with honest and grace, especially with Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson delivering such solid performances.
