Audience Reviews for The Locket


on his wedding day to the seemingly ideal woman, john willis gets a visit from a mysterious man with a strange tale to tell. the structure of multiple nested flashbacks works very well and everyone is convincing, especially laraine day. i don't wanna give too much away here but the ending is wrapped a little too neatly for my taste, otherwise pretty great!
