Two sisters, Grace and Violet, bound together by more than blood, live a reclusive life in a large mansion, detached from society and reality too. They have a plan. It's hardly conventional, but the outcome nine months later is all that counts. Whatever they do they must not fall in love with the man that they choose to ensnare. Set in contemporary New England.

Lame, Annoying, Confuse, Awful Impossible to Be Understood
Two sisters, Violet (Alicia Silverstone) and Grace (Sienna Guillory), very bounded to each other, live in an old mansion with ghosts of their past. Violet meets Luke (Joe Anderson) in a bar, and brings him to her mansion. Along the days, she seduces him, and they have sex many times as part of a plot with Grace. When Luke decides to leave the house with Violet, Grace tries to avoid, and Luke finds that they are trapped in the place.
This lame film gave me the sensation that a part is missing. I saw it on DVD, but if it was on VHS, I would believe that the tape might have broken and missed the part with the explanation of the plot of Grace and Violet. I am not sure if the screenplay is awful, or the characters are badly developed or both, but I was not able to understand the confuse story. The soundtrack in many parts is annoying, Alicia Silverstone is not sexy in the sex scenes, therefore nothing but the beautiful cinematography works in this awful direction. I would not recommend this flick even in a rainy and boring Saturday afternoon in Rio de Janeiro. My vote is two.
