Just great
15 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie was good beyond my expectation. I loved the plot, the characters. Judith Light was great. I really loved it. Except for the saxophone which I thought didn't fit in right into the movie, it's perfect. Great suspense. Wow. I'm not good at making reviews. It says here I have to make at least 10 sentences for this to be published. I just saw this film now and I highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed watching it. I kept guessing who was who.

I liked how it ended too. My review may not be good but this movie is worth your time. It really is worth your time.

Just watch it.
