Storyline

Three violent young men stranded in an isolated country house, carjack a Swiss couple driving to a wedding in the U.S. Husband Daniel blurts out that he'll pay millions if they don't hurt his pregnant wife, so the leader sets off for the wedding with Daniel, to arrange ransom. The other, strangely polite kidnappers stay in the house with the wife, but don't even lock her up, as Irene's pregnancy and religious faith play with their raw emotions. Written by David Stevens

Another Terrific Indie Film...
9 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very good film, a bit short, but nevertheless satisfying. What captured my attention was the edgy performances of the two actors who played Leo and Renny. Their work was comparable in quality to that of Robert Blake's in In Cold Blood. The script and direction by writer/director David Barker was also top notch. As an author of murder mysteries (the Matt Davis Mystery Series), I was particularly impressed with the dialog, and the attention to detail it entailed. The one disappointment for me was the ending, which I thought neglected to tie up the loose ends created by the kidnapping of the husband. But, all in all, this was a quality film that deserved more attention that it apparently received. If you've got an hour and twenty minutes to kill, you could do a lot worse than spending it watching Daylight.
