This was the main thought that ran through my mind as I laboured through this movie. And indeed it held true, for although the movie as a whole was quite slow, it was a solid story and held a few twists which came as a pleasant but not stunning surprise. A family win a car in a raffle, are featured on the front page of the local newspaper and unwittingly this sets them up for a couple who "have nothing" to strike at the family that "has everything" by kidnapping and ransom. The "good" and "bad" guys here were a real mix of greys, so you couldn't quite decide which way to let your loyalties flow. All up it was an interesting few hours spent watching people dealing with a traumatic event and financial and emotional losses and there after effects.
