great movie

melissa leo was nominated for an oscar for her preformance in this film. Critics loved it, i loved it, you will love it

The best of 2008!

This movie did not get enough credit! It is a fantastic thriller and every actor performs to their extent. I really recommend this movie.


This is the best movie that no one's ever heard of. I'm so glad Melissa Leo was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar and I think this movie was better than some that were nominated for Best Picture.
