I saw the good reviews here and decided to give this a try. However, from very early on, I just kept wanting something to move ahead! We spend the entire movie wondering "is she or isn't she?" and IMO that's not enough to hang everything on. All the actors do well enough in their roles, but this story could have been told in about 10 minutes.
If this story had more rich plot development it would have been better; as it was, everything just kept feeding us back to that nagging question, which for me became more tedious than intriguing as the movie dragged on.
Reeve was somewhat enjoyable as the heavy; it was a good change of pace for him and he was credible. I also liked seeing a priest portrayed as a normal human being; Hollywood doesn't always have the attention span for that.
In parting: my namesake character here is going to need a whole lot of counseling, I think. :-)
