Good movie - very suspenseful
28 September 2003 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

Just saw this film at the Blue Sky Film Festival here in Las Vegas. I have to say that of all the films screened, I think I enjoyed this one the most. In mood, pacing and style, it kind of reminded me of The Others with Nicole Kidman.

It's a film that makes you think as it slowly unfolds, showing bits and pieces that let you discover for yourself the relationship between Lila and the inscrutable Mr. Barrington. I think that different people will walk away with varying interpretations of what has happened by the end of the film. Ultimately, I think that can be one of the best kinds of films - one that leaves people talking in their seats at the end.

We had the benefit of having Jennifer (Lila, and the film's writer) and her husband, Dana (the director) at our screening, so we were able to discuss our views and some of the movie's finer points & ultimately clarify some of the things we'd seen.

The movie was beautifully shot & has sort of a filmy, misty look to it that heightens the tension. Jennifer gives an amazingly frail quality to Lila that makes the scenes with Samuel even more touching. Add to that Brian McCardie as Mr. Barrington, both playful and menacing, and the film is filled with brilliantly understated performances.

Unfortunately, Dana told us that the film has not yet been picked up for wide release, but will be making the rounds of several of the smaller film festivals. I would strongly recommend that you take the opportunity to see it, if it shows anywhere in your area. It's well worth it, especially after a summer filled with sequels and "let's blow everything up" action flicks. I only hope that word-of-mouth will spread on this little gem so that more people can enjoy it.
