This is called "Tough Guy"
6 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was a misguided film. What should have been about a woman who was suffering from the suicide of her husband became an unexplained flick about a psychopathic / atypical crazy girl.

When looking into the actual premise it's just a sad story about a woman who has early onset dementia and hysteria induced from the sudden death of her husband.

She becomes mislead by her own sense of reason and drifts from reality. I couldn't say that there was anything appealing about this movie if not for the intent of watching Heather Graham in a once in a life time performance.

Plus, me from 10yrs ago is now cackling like a child and saying that she makes out with Carrie-Anne Moss for a whole scene.
