Customer Reviews

An ending you don't see coming.

This is a pretty good movie, feels a little slow at times. The acting of the daughter was sorta hit and miss but Nivens and Kerr's chemistry was great. Kerr carried this film. I wouldn't say it's worth a buy but most definitely a rent! I didn't like that it was black and white sometimes then color sometimes. This movie shows you how your actions can affect other people.
