Cuba Gooding Jr.,
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
I saw this movie at the recent Garden State Film Festival and checked on it's status here. I'm amazed at it's low ranking. It was an intelligent, well scripted, strongly acted drama with a point of view, presented by a talented director with a strong visual eye. Okay, I can imagine that it's content might not sit well with many mainstream cinema-goers but that's no reason to rate it low. It's a movie made by a woman on women's issues with (presumably) women in mind as its target audience. It will make you think and perfectly recaptures an early nineties time and place. If you like your cinema to be more than eye candy then it deserves a viewing and you'll be pleasantly surprised. I'm not going to include a vote here because I got to know the director but I'd definitely recommend it. Give it a chance.
