Storyline

An impulsive sexual encounter from her past haunts Amy, an otherwise seemingly normal young woman with a bright future and nice-guy fiancé. But her fiancé has suggested that the couple be completely honest and tell each other everything! When Amy finally relents, encouraged to tell the truth by her coworker and mother (neither of whom really knows what she has to disclose), and reveals her secret, all hell breaks loose. Written by Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival Director

A great little film!!!
2 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Woof.Woof Woof.Woof!!Two big thumbs up!!A great film from an unlikely director. This was so good,I was actually waiting for the credits to find out who made this one. Never knew "Ol Bobcat had it in him. Not to sound cliché', but...I laughed, I cried, I found myself wanting for more. What more can you ask of a film? This one's gem from start to finish. Yes, it's a little raw, but any production shortcomings are more than offset by the outstanding script, performances, and overall experience. Hat's off Bobcat!! I'll be anxiously awaiting your next project.This one's a keeper. Great title too!(you'll see what I mean...lol)
