Quotes

[last lines, Ruth is in prison for trying to attempt murder]
Ruth Coe: [to her prison guard] I, uh... don't suppose I have a letter from son? He's so loyal - he writes me often. I have a fine baby boy. Well, he's not really a baby anymore, but he'll always be my baby. Do you have children?
[the prison guard looks at her as she waits]
Ruth Coe: No, I've asked you that before. Everyone should have children; it's life's grandest experience, to watch them grow, to become good and fine and strong, someone to look after ...

Quite obvious
1 October 2004 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I think it was a very obvious plot since the very beginning, in spite of the apparent good relation that the guy keeps with his mother to the outside world while is very notorious how possessive the woman is towards the son and how he feels about her doing that.

Plus alternatively some cases of rape to a lot of women, making at least to me, the immediate connection of who was behind it, because we didn't get to know more people that you could believe were other possible "suspects"...yes i know is not an episode of Murder she wrote but a real life story film showing us simultaneously what was going on since the beginning, what to me means a big: BOOOORIIIIIIIIIING moment...so if you just want to be right about it, you just need to stay until the whole thing ends.

So you can watch it if you really don't have anything better to do or because you were put into quarantine and there is nothing else showing on TV, otherwise don't...unless you like this type of film.
