Lack of supporting talent kills it
26 December 2002 | by (Minnesooooooooota) – See all my reviews

I could not get into this film, which bothered me as the two young actresses playing the leads were extraordinarily good. However, the whole flashback structure required the story to be told to two supporting actors in 'current' time, neither of whom seem like they have any acting chops whatsoever. "Jane" and "John" are such caricatures that any scene involving them feels incredibly false. The flashback sequences are excellent -- except for the victim, who is also a terrible actress -- and those are compelling enough to make the film worth a look. I gave it a 5. Shame on either the producer or the director for the casting decisions involved. Alicia Witt is especially good in this.

If you want to see the same theme dramatized much more effectively, see "Heavenly Creatures".
