Great story telling film, with a unexpected twist at the end. Ambrose does a wonderful job, so does Amy Madigan. This could have easily been trite..but this seemed like a great collborative effort.More
It starts off a little unsure of itself but gradually grows in confidence. This has a similar story but is superior to, and pre-dates, "Proof". There's a neat twist towards the end which actually enhances the story (rather than make you go, "hang on?", like lots of other movies do). A stellar performance from Lauren Ambrose, and Fran Kranz is also good. A very good way to spend 84 mins of your time. If you get the DVD, whatever you do, don't watch the trailer first, as it practically gives away every revelation.More
