Quotes

Train Announcer: Next stop, West Midland.
Trev: Notice the way she emphasizes 'West Midland', makes it sound quiet, what's the word, personal. Cause we already know we're in Midland, but she lets us know we're on the westside of Midland. Makes you feel, like, it's ok, we're all in this together folks.
The Tall Thug: This is gonna be a long trip.

Drama/Thriller Builds to a Crescendo
16 April 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what to expect and originally watched this movie because I like just about anything with Gigi Edgley in it. I wasn't disappointed at all. This movie starts out in what seems a slow and sluggish way but the eventual twists and turns make it all worthwhile. It was an excellent character study piece. It really isn't a movie for the younger crowd because of the adult situations. But then, I guess compared to HollyWould movies this is rather tame. It is just that the acting and situations build to a crescendo towards the end and present the subject matter in a very visceral way. It will have you on the edge of your seat towards the end. The casting couldn't have been better, the acting was great, and the direction was excellent. It is a drama/thriller extraordinaire.
