A movie that hit home
11 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think that more movies should be made like this. There are a lot of people out there that have problems and they don't know it or they know it but don't get help. and something bad happens and nothing gets done about it except a slap on the hand because they are mental ill. this movie really hit home for me, but in my case in turned out for the good instead of the bad which could of happened if i did not get out of the relationship. In Nancy's case she was just trying to be a good friend trying to help him and it turned out for the worse because he could not deal with the fact that she did feel the sane way about him as he felt for her. and that lead him to kill her. it could of been a different story if he would of got help.
