Storyline

From a psychiatric ward, tutor & proofreader Gaby Winters elaborately recounts an evening spent babysitting a 16 year old girl--an evening that results in the girl's disappearance. While Gaby's story is recorded to video, she tells of her urgent attempts to relocate the missing teen before her parents return home. Gaby's search is set to a tapestry of snaking subplots: the unlikely spy hunting down an envelope, the eloping girl he exploits, her doting mother, the military husband, his pious mistress, an abducted woman, and the ailing fiancé wandering around in a karate gi bent on beating a man he mostly-believes is banging his girl. Gaby's story--infused with anarchy--will climax memorably, or so she intends. Written by Anonymous

Jennifer Morrison really shows that she is an under-utilized actor.
30 August 2007 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Jennifer Morrison really shows that she is an under-utilized actor. In fact, both Jen and Jesse Spencer are 180-degrees from their inoffensive roles on House, MD. Surrounded by a wonderful ensemble of actors, they create a story that thrives on suspense and humor. A very deliberate, concise work with a steady tone.

The writer/director demonstrates a high degree of authorship. And yet the writing idiosyncrasies are not self-conscious or showy. And the performances only elaborate on what's already there. Jennifer Morrison, in particular, seems self-possessed in the role -- living out and behaving each moment rather than 'acting' it.

Further, this is a movie interested, it seems, in mise-en-scene rather than montage; fully bodied performances, fluid masters, and purposely under-cut. A movie that chooses long-take tableaux -- like an Altman film, or the Dardenne Brothers, or Gus van Sant -- over fragmentation via cutting. Pretty good stuff.
