Picked this up out of curiosity at the video shop and was pleasantly surprised. I though the acting was good, the characterisations well based and the story credible. I liked the drama and tension between what many women must feel when they have a satisfying career and all supports are lost through a senseless act. The moralistic and righteous stance is really challenged and I think many will accept the decision Rachel takes. While not top shelf, this movie does make one think.
