Trivia

When Sally (Toni Collette) returns home and looks into a reference book she looks at an article on Leopold and Loeb. This was a famous case from the 1920s where two fellow students from the University of Chicago decided to commit the 'perfect murder'. They were easily caught but were spared the death sentence after a highly-regarded defence from Clarence Darrow. See more »

When Sally is reading about serial killers on the computer, she comes across something about Myra Hindley that has been mistakenly spelled as Mayra Hindley. See more »

" Did you ever meet one of those unusual people in your life, You wish you hadn't ? "
19 October 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

History is the study of man's past. To some it's merely a collection of events, to others it's a series of memories, but to a certain segment of people, it's the sum collection of heritage and honor. In this incredible black and dark movie originally called 'Murderous Intent', but retitled "Like Minds" it's the tale of two boys. Alex (Eddie Redmayne, incredible acting) and Nigel Colbie (Tom Sturridge, intriguing performance) attending the same private school. Although they seem at odds with other, they are in fact much closer than meets the eye. When a series of murders catch the attention of the local constabulary it falls to Inspector McKenzie (Richard Roxburgh) to solve them. His conclusions are quick and to the point, but he needs a psychological profile of one student to close the case. A Psychologist (Toni Collette) is called in and soon is embroiled in a battle of wits with an extremely manipulative young man, who relates the story of his evil school friend. One, she is certain is the mastermind, the other is a conniving and controlling con-artist, who believes in his family history and blood line to up hold tradition and any measures necessary to achieve a holy means. Not since Alfred Hitchcock has such dark drama been offered to an audience. Writer/Director Gregory Read has indeed surpassed that goal. Excellent suspense and shadowy mayhem for those interested in a twisted plot with an equally twisted conclusion. ****
