Not Profound, but better than most films
24 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

This film I watched through just once. It tells the story of two young yuppies, who enter into life's vicissitudes, and how they begin to heal.

Neither character seems entirely genuine and some are a tad over done, maybe boarding on unlikable.

The essence is a young yuppie professional couple with far more money and privileges than most of us hit a snare when a random rapist, comes through Izzy's (Robin Turney) studio window and rapes her.

It is never quite revealed why she refuses DNA testing and actually does not cooperate with the police in finding the rapist.

Indeed, one could surmise, she has permitted the rapist yet another chance at rape of some other open windowed women. This makes thoughtful viewers wonder about her motives. Did she know the rapist? Was she simply a coward, feeling the rapist would make good on his threats and return to slay her if she told police the whole truth.

Instead, she proceeds as a Princess would, and rejects all suggestions of how to heal. She later moves out on her distanced fiancé, Joel Edgarton.

The meat of this drama is it attempts to be more profound than it actually is. It really is a brief window into the lives of a young couple, facing existential crisis.

The end scene is strange and again shows the egotism of both. Neither can go on because neither wants to make any concessions to the other, to catalyze the healing process.

The film actually isn't bad, just trivial.
