After driving husband Martin to infidelity and catching him with another, mentally unstable author Jade returns to her New Zealand home. The plan is to write a book based on the town's history, helped by the local school teacher and her college thesis protégée, and visit her father Christopher. As her editor later explains, her suspicions concerning ever more locals stem from a pathological mental condition. However, more then just paranoia comes with the horse riding incident which killed her ma, an obsessive guilt matter for her and Christopher. Written by
I agree with the previous review.. not enough is explained.. there is a particular story line with a little boy and his old soul, I would have loved to see played out and explained but they never go there. He looks at the lead Jade as if he knows her. is smitten with her it seems , talks about having been "old" He even sings a song only people from the past would know and it's never explained. Also they never wrap up the husband storyline, which is odd because he checks on her during the movie . I am not sure why they included that if they weren't going to include him in the rest of the movie.. The father being so ugly to his daughter is odd, but then when they wrap up this "mystery" which honestly, they should have delved a little deeper into it I am thinking, the father and daughter reconcile way too quickly for him having been so abusive to her in the past and recently. I would give this 3 stars out of 6.. only because I love mysteries :) and at least it had a twist.. Rachel Hunter doesn't do a bad acting job.. she looks pretty worn and ragged throughout and very confused.. but the conclusion wraps up too neatly..
and actually it's like a bad lifetime movie:)but worth a watch.
