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 »

Goofs

When Alex reads Nigel's book and looks at Nigel's family tree, Nigel's last name is spelled Colbie. However, when he is reading the newspaper at the end, Nigel's name is spelled Colby. See more »

Nice Surprise
24 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I passed this film up on several trips to Blockbuster because I disliked the title and didn't care much for the photo on the DVD box. But, Blockbuster showcases so much crap, and I had basically exhausted all of my viewing choices when I finally settled on this DVD. To my great surprise, this is a fascinating movie, with just enough twists and turns to keep the viewer interested. Toni Colette is wonderful and believable in the role of a forensic psychologist tasked with interviewing a murder suspect. Her job: to weave together the fragments of his harrowing narrative in order to ascertain his culpability, which the impetuous arresting officer (he has testosterone seeping out of his pores) is eager to have confirmed. The film is brilliant because it pitches together a smart forensic psychologist who eventually has to pull her dusty textbooks off the shelf to read up on Gestalt, with a young man of remarkable, quiet brilliance and the cunning of a fox at the chicken coop. Well worth viewing.
