Likeluy divide critics and viewers, this is a simpler and less layered film than other works from Egoyan, who seems unable to infuse the pyschological thriller with his characteristic humor and irony.
Every time we think we know what's going to happen, the story spins off in a curious new direction...
A strange but compelling tale about trust, pain, and the miraculous power of healing.
What fails this otherwise competent and worthwhile production, is that everything falls too easily into psychological place by the film's end.
It projects a coldly composed, alarming, yet singularly humorous quality that few thrillers even attempt.
