In the following scene showing the mother playing with the brothers, Rose has the cigarette back in her hand. The scene flashes back to Rose and Gracie, where Rose is now holding Gracie's hand with the hand she was holding the cigarette. See more »

Excellent, but puzzling at times
27 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie actually kept my wife awake! It was an excellent story and you just have to admire Gracie for her determination. She would be someone I would like to meet. The acting was extremely good, especially Anne Heche. She should be nominated for some kind of award for her performance,scary at times. Diane Ladd, great, as always, and Kristen Bell was reasonably convincing. I was a bit puzzled about the romantic relationship that Gracie had in the story. It should have had more substance to it. At first the boyfriend was completely understanding of Gracie's plight, and in an instant he reversed his feelings. I couldn't understand the meaning of the robbery/shooting scene involving Gracie and the children either. No matter, overall a must see.
