  • [The film] goes down like medicine.

  • [A] sometimes unbearably slow, uneven melodrama that's not without a few powerful sequences.

  • [A]voids all the overblown histrionics of other similar films that have dealt with such subject matter... and finds the quiet but difficult core of the act of will that is survival and recovery.

  • ...feels like a short that's unnaturally been expanded to feature length...

  • I just couldn't buy into the way the film veered into a family drama when it started out so confidently.

    I'm not sure why this movie hasn't had better ratings. Maybe it was a little slow at times, but I found it very good, and very moving. It was well done, with some really great actors...complete with a very nice, satisfying ending.

    True to life. The stuggles of coming to terms when something horrific happens, especially rape, for both men and women is severe. It doesn't always just affect the ones who were raped... it affects their partner, their family, and their friends. I think they did a great job showing the emotional breakdown of everyone in the film and each of them coming to terms with things in their own way.

    Here's an interesting movie about one woman's post-ordeal through a most horrific experience that anyone could ever imagine. Robin Tunney and Joel Edgerton stars. They play the couple that are just about to get married and begin their life together, until that awful act of rape alters their dream. They try to cope in their own way, and then finally try to mend their broken relationship before its too late. Cybill Shepherd and Elliot Gould co-stars. Definitely worth seeing!

    Bleh. Was this supposed to be a comedy?
