Jackson Kinley wears his watch on on his right hand an writes with his right hand. Very usual. Also in a latter scene with the mother driving, the car passes guard rail the were not used until the lat 70s to early 80s. See more »
When Jackson goes to Dora's and climbs into the well, he is wearing a plaid shirt - next in the house his shirt is a solid color - in the morning, his shirt is back to plaid. This may or may not be due to his shirt getting wet in the well. It's possible he's wearing one of Ray's shirts. See more »
Andrew Mondshein has obviously been paying attention. He has created an almost flawless bit of storytelling. From beginning to end its hauntingly beautiful and thought provoking. I compare it favorably to the best works of John Sayles, possibly the finest contemporary american filmmaker. Is it a coincidence that two Sayles veterans David Strathairn and Mary McConnell are excellent in this movie??
Its structure is complicated, but it is handled with a deft hand. Bernadette Kelly's editing is seamless. I recommend it very highly to anyone who enjoys a good whodunit or simply a wonderfully crafted entertainment. It certainly does not seem like a TV movie, even if it is a Canadian production, which, of course, are usually superior. Give it many stars.
