We just got this out on DVD. I had no expectations at all with it.
I loved the movie and thought that it was an absolutely excellent film with strong characters with believable motives and actions.
Kate Winslet, Patrick Wilson and Jennifer Connelly star in an intense movie about what lonely and controlled people do when their life just isn't going the right way.
The movie built up so much, that I was actually nervous about how it might go, how these characters who I really cared about and had a vested interest in might be hurt or humiliated. It was torture in the last few minutes.
Any movie that can do that to me deserves my praise. A simply excellent movie.
