I really enjoyed this film. I like the way the kid was acting out the mother's distress..re: the sleepwalking, stealing..etc. The layering of this film is lovely. It shows the complex nature of friendship and how we mirror each other's fears. I have been to the West Coast and was blown away how beautiful the cinematographer captured the look of it. The night scenes were so captivating I felt like I was there again. The subtleties in the script keep you thinking long after it has ended. I easily became emotionally attached To the characters and the general spookiness of it gave it a nice edge. The writer left out needless filler conversation leaving it to the Director to complete the moment. I was a little nervous about seeing Jennifer Beals again but her performance was outstanding. Refreshing to See a film less concerned with fast cuts and cheap fillers but Confident of it's slow pace and great writing.
