the story of this movie is not that big deal, you see a lot of movies like these all around the world, but, the impressive acting skills of William Dafoe and Mirren, that what gave this movie a taste.
The story was predictable, although the ending was surprising a little bet, I expected something different.
What i loved most about the movie was the acting, William Dafoe was really into the character, he played well, and i was impressed.
Also Mirren Played such a wonderful role, I liked the way she was cool and all quiet, you didn't see her fall apart at the end when she gets the bad news, wonderful performance she did, i think it's the best role she ever played.
