(Some slight Spoilers) Well acted and written story about the heart-breaking loneliness of being abandoned at a very young age and how it's shapes the mind to the point of conjuring up a twisted sort of pseudo-vengeance and false sense of justice on the part of the person effected.

Sophie Hartley has been going through very hard and stressful times of late with her mothers unexpected death and having to look after her elderly father. But Sophie's job as a writer and illustrator of children books of-sets them keeping her mind focused on her work.

Happily married to Craig with two cute and loving daughters Anna & Ruby Sophie is getting over her moms death until a number of strange things start to happen to her. things which she later strongly suspects are being orchestrated by her new next door neighbors wife, or live in girlfriend, Mara. Mara for her part is at the time working for Sophie's husband Caig, an architect, as his assistant which has Sophie strongly suspect that she's trying to steal Craig away from her.

Beautiful but somewhat on the weird side Mara seems to be mimicking Sophie In everything that she does. Even wearing the same cloths that in one case when one of her dresses go missing, Sophie suspects that she stole from her home. Slowly being driven insane Sophie falls behind in her work and almost causes her daughter Ruby to overdose on cough medicine. Because her mind is so out of focus over her fear of Mara and what Mara is trying to do to her and her family. It later turns out that Mara is indeed interested in Craig and pulls out all stops one evening in his office just about throwing herself at him. With Craig at first reluctantly then gladly giving in to her advances.

Sophie for her part has become so obsessed with Mara that she sneaks into her home, looking for items that she suspects Mara of stealing from her, and is arrested for breaking and entering. At her trial Sophie is ordered by the presiding judge to stay as far as 500 yards away from Mara, and her boyfriends Jimmy's, home. Losing her mind and not caring what happens to her Sophie again breaks into Mara's place looking for the family cat who was seen there and is trapped, by Mara, in the basement. This happened as both of Shphie's children, Anna & Ruby, are upstairs playing and dancing together with Mara.

Trying to break out Sophie looking through a number of personal effects of Mara stored there in the basement sees the real reason for her violent dislike of her and why she's going to such great lengths to hurt and even kill Sophie. Which leads to the final and fiery confrontation between the two with both of them ending up in the hospital emergency ward. The really big surprise comes at the very end of the movie when you think that you've already found out the reasons for Mara's strange and unstable behavior. And it's about as shocking, as well as surprising, as anything you'll ever see in a surprise-ending film.

Susan Sarandon and Sam Neill as Sophie and Craig Hartley are excellent as the befuddled and targeted, by Mara, couple who have no idea to what's happening to them throughout the entire movie. with Emily Blunt as the cunning and manipulative Mara pulling all the strings and driving both of them out of their minds and in the case of Sophie almost into prison or a mental institution. It's without a doubt the ending to "Irrisistable" that's so effective yet cryptic ,that you have to watch it twice to really figure it out. It will shock you right down to your socks and the soles of your shoes. That and that alone is more then worth the price of admission to the theater or rental at Blockbuster or any other video store in your neighborhood.
