Fake accents aside. It should have been much better.
8 August 2001 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

Two very talented actors in a strange and twisted tale. An orphaned girl seeks freedom from her orphanage by marrying an older man she does not love. Not enough character development. Good story with a bad screenplay. I'm sure Jodie would like to stick this one in her "never again" file.
