not so bad
13 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you get your hands on this Canadian production do not pass it- It is nothing spectacular, however, it has some mystery, drama and soul-searching that keeps you watching till the end. It tells the tale of a small town woman Betty and her mid-life crisis: crappy waitressing job, violent ex boyfriend, separated parents and a sister with issues of her own. Amidst of all of this, their small town is plagued by a series of murders with a serial killer on the loose.

Again, the movie could have been better executed in terms of plot and some other aspects of its storyline, however overall, it was quite original and the actors did a super good job portraying some very complex characters. And the message at the end of the movie is not so bad either- you may not conquer the world, but be true to yourself and do the best you can with what you have to work with.
