Creepy and fabulous

The story of a girl's obsession and how that effects everyone involved. A simple idea that is complicated by human emotions and deception. Whoa! Beautiful direction that brings our three complicated performances - especially from Adrienne Wilkinson. i was stunned by her character as it was so different from anything I had seen her play. You feel sorry for her. You feel scared of her. You want her to win. Its a fine line to walk, but she does it! There is one look she gives near the end of the film that says it all. You think she's lost...but no she revels in the small victory, knowing a larger one is around the corner. Its a great story, and its the tiny details in the writing that really bring it to life. The music is so haunting and adds to the over all effect. I want to own a copy of this film!
