I missed a film class to see this movie, it was closing after only a week so I decided to see the last showing, a late Thursday. Thanks God, I missed my class, because I REALLY loved the film. I read the first review on the site and I'm in total disagreement with it. I cannot understand how you cannot be in awe with the film. The acting is top-notch especially from Diane Ladd and Sarah Polley. I didn't read the novel but it is so intelligently adapted to the screen. The diverse narrative reminded me of a Scott Heim novel. The film may not be an ideal first-date material but if you're open-minded you'll love The Law of Enclosures. Anyhow, I really enjoyed the film so GO SEE IT! ;.)
