A taut exacting drama on the nature of family violence
25 June 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is an exceptional first film on the ways violence can poison a family. The film pulls no punches and Angel wrist great performances from her cast. Especially the young girls. The film plays-out like a thriller and finishes like a Grim fairy-tale. I look forward to her future releases.
