Storyline

With her husband perpetually away at work, a mother raises her children virtually alone. Her teenage son is testing the waters of the adult world, and early one morning she wakes to find the dead body of his gay lover on the beach of their rural lakeside home. What would you do? What is rational and what do you do to protect your child? How far do you go and when do you stop? Written by Sujit R. Varma

Quotes

Margaret Hall: We don't have the money.
Alek 'Al' Spera: You have to get the money. Is that not clear enough?
Margaret Hall: It's $50,000. It is not the kind of thing that everyone can just go out and get.
Alek 'Al' Spera: Have you spoken with your husband?
Margaret Hall: He can't be reached. He's on a carrier somewhere in the nor - This is truly none of your business.
Alek 'Al' Spera: What about the old man? Well, you have to try harder.
Margaret Hall: "Try harder?"
Alek 'Al' Spera: I don't think you're really trying.
Margaret Hall: Really?
Alek 'Al' Spera: Yes.

simply ridiculous
27 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

this film is ridiculous ~ and the main character (tilda swinton as margaret hall) is even more so. she is the most ridiculous and whiny woman i've seen in a film in a long time. she spends most of her time in the film begging someone for something ~ "pleeease, (fill in the blank)." she begs her father-in-law, both of her sons (several times), her daughters, alec (the goran visnjic character) ... EVERYONE! if i knew this woman personally i would probably slap her, rather like cher slaps nicholas cage in "moonstruck" ~ "snap out of it!"

the only redeeming factor of this film was that it took up some time on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
