This is one of those drama/thrillers that gradually reveal the true essence of the characters through a well developed storyline. The acting and dialogue is highly credible, its certainly not 'off the cuff', relaxed acting, it's more thoughtful and diplomatic, which may give some viewers the imression of 'wooden' acting. If you're the type of person who thinks before you speak you'll find this dialogue VERY believable. I found the whole story really intriguing, especially the ending. You might compare the antagonist to something like Fatal Attraction in terms of general psychosis,, although it's more a tale of revenge. If you liked Misery then you may like this-it's not flashy, its not big budget but it's clever and it's real. I had a much better time watching this then some of those billion-dollar blockbusters I had to painfully sit through!
