Storyline

Neil Malone's widow Anna, who lost him and their daughter Chloe in an accident years ago, returns to town with present lover Billy Moss to renovate the house she inherited from an aunt. Local shy handyman Charlie is hurt when she hints at a gardening company in town to take over and is the first to warn her against the effects of her aunt's 'magical' music box. Soon Anna has reason to doubt her mental sanity, finding herself suddenly in situations that could only occur with years in between, or even contradict the known past or future.

It is a nervous and exciting thing to see a film on the screen in a space so familiar to your life as your own house. I grew up in "the crazy aunt's" house in this movie. It was surprising to see how the floor plan of the house as it was in the movie changed from the way it actually is in real life. People would run through doorways and come into "the next room" only to be somewhere completely different, or they would come running down a stair case from a room that wouldn't make sense with where they had supposedly come from. Ahhh the magic of film huh?

As for the movie itself, I give it a high 6 to a 7 out of 10. It was better than I expected overall, however its always hard to get good acting out of a child and some of the lines seemed a little rough/weak either in their delivery or just in the dialogue. Its one that definitely does make you think. The plot is good but the character development would need a lot of work to turn this one into a theatre production. Besides, its only 1.5 hours--clearly made for TV.
