Movie Info

On January 18, 2003, police, alerted by a frantic 911 call from a distraught pair of teenage girls, arrived at the girls Toronto area townhouse to find their mother dead. It appeared the 44-year-old alcoholic, having slipped into a booze-and-pill stupor, drowned in her own bathwater. The death was ruled accidental by the authorities. In the months that followed, however, police were alerted to rumours and reports that the teenagers had been gossiping to friends about the accident. Police began piecing together rumours that suggested the teens might have had a hand in their mother's death. In fact, rather than an accident, the story that emerged portrayed the two teens as cold-blooded, premeditated killers. (C) Official Facebook

    Poor. This could have been told much better.

    Abigail Breslin stars in the dark, true-life crime drama Perfect Sisters. Based on actual events, two sisters, Sandra and Beth Anderson, grow tired of the abuse and neglect of their deadbeat, alcoholic mother and her boyfriends, and begin to believe that her death may be their only way out. Unfortunately the performances aren't that good and don't make for very compelling characters. The directing too is underwhelming. Also, the plot is poorly constructed, with random fantasy segments that feel out of place. Additionally, the ending is rushed and doesn't give a lot of attention to the aftermath of the Anderson's actions; bringing into question what the moral of the story is. Perfect Sisters is far from perfect, but it does explore some provocative social issues.

    Good, could have been better, but still enjoyed it. I didn't really like the "what if" game - it was too hammy for the subject matter. Also dragged a little long towards the end. However, good performances from the cast and great to see Mira Sorvino in something recent. I do look at her and see Romy, though, can't help it! Please say that's not how Romy wound up!
